Some fourty EPFL Students registered to take part in the 8th Edition of the Competition My Thesis in 180 seconds (MT180).

For each participant, the goal is to present his or her research in simple, straightforward terms in 3 minutes before an audience. This is thus an exercise in popularizing the thesis and explaining it, in French or English, in a clear, concise and compelling manner – all with the support of a single slide !

The selections are open to the public and will take place on Wednesday 24 January, Friday 2 February and Wednesday 7 February 2024. Unlike the final, the selections are not recorded for the public. Colleagues, friends, families, thesis directors, come to listen to them and encourage them!

Fourteen participants will be selected by the jury for the EPFL final which will take place on 21 March 2024.
