About NUI Galway’s Threesis

The fast-paced event will feature a series of three-minute talks by some of the amazing researchers from NUI Galway. The contestants will share the story of their research using just three presentation slides, in three minutes, with the winners to be selected by three judges.

Not only is there the challenge of time, but the participants – who include undergraduates, PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers – have been tasked with using clear and jargon-free language.

A series of training workshops and heats have taken place on campus over the last number of weeks in preparation for the final. The initial 80 participants have been whittled down to just 12 finalists.
