Why Participate

There are many reasons why you might consider participating in next editions of the Three-Minute Ph.D. Competition in the Social Sciences.

The competition will allow you firstly to identify your strengths and weaknesses when communicating a subject, as complex as your research, in a clear and concise manner.

It will help you further to explain your work effectively to non-specialized audiences, a core skill when working in both academic and non-academic environments.

You can upload your video to your online profile and of course share the video with people interested in your work.

Wide visibility will be given to your doctoral research, should you be amongst the best videos of the competition.

And, last but not least, you might win a prize!



The Three Minute Ph.D. Competition is an excellent opportunity to convey the knowledge you are building at the EUI with a wider audience and to increase the visibility of the research you are carrying out.”
