New call for participants to enter the "Thesis in 4 Minutes" competition


The challenge consists in PhD students who have yet to defend their PhD thesis, explain their research orally in under four minutes. All those interested can present their proposals from 4 to 22 March 2021.


The competition “Tesi en 4 minuts”, organised by the UAB Doctoral School, offers PhD students the chance to explain their research in an oral presentation lasting a maximum of four minutes with easy to comprehend language aimed at the general public.

Candidates can submit their proposals from 4 to 22 March 2021. The winning proposals will be selected by a committee of researchers and members of the Doctoral School's Permanent Board.

On 27 April 2021 all selected candidates will be notified via email. Oral presentations will take place on 18 May 2021, in an event open to the public which will take place at the "Carles Perelló" Graduation Hall (Sala de graus) of the Doctoral School, which will be broadcast live on the university's website. This year's format could be modified to adapt to the Covid-19 health restrictions which may be put into force at the moment of the event.

The first prize will include a cash prize of 800 euros and the second prize, 500 euros. A 200 euro cash prize will go to the best presentation voted by the audience.
