­­­­­­­­From doctoral student to doctoral student: why and how to summarise your research in three minutes?

Do you feel that no one but you can understand what your doctoral thesis is about? Would you like to be able to talk about your research in a simple and concise way, so that your grandmother and nephew could also understand it? Would you like your research to make other people's eyes light up with excitement? 

If you said 'yes' to all of the above, attend the information session on Thursday, 7 September, from 14:15–15:15, where Kertu Liis Krigul, Jürgen Karvak and Kristo Raun, doctoral students who successfully took part in the University of Tartu three-minute thesis competition, will explain why it is worthwhile for young researchers to participate in the competition. They will talk about their experiences of the Estonian Academy of Sciences' "Science in Three Minutes" competition and answer questions from the audience. 

The information session will be held in English in the online environment Teams

Everyone is welcome! Sign up and send your questions to the speakers here.
