Public engagement in research: Taylor & Francis sponsor Vitae’s 2016 UK Three Minute Thesis competition

Taylor & Francis has announced that they will be the headline sponsor for this year’s Vitae national Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT®), the largest national 3MT® competition in the world.

Originally developed by The University of Queensland, 3MT® is a celebration of the dynamic and exciting work conducted by doctoral researchers across the UK. The competition challenges participants to explain their research in just three minutes, and in a way that can be understood by a non-specialist audience.

Open to any Vitae member higher education institution, the competition attracts entrants from across the UK. Taylor & Francis will be part of the judging panel and provide prizes to finalists. This will include a grant to the judges' choice winner for further public engagement activities, giving the winner the opportunity to enhance their professional development and profile beyond the competition.

Each entrant will already have competed in and won the 3MT® competition within their own institution, then progress to an online national semi-final from which six finalists are selected to take part in the live final  - a highlight of Vitae’s Researcher Development International Conference in Manchester on 12th September.

Further details available on the Taylor & Francis website.
