Event Language French, English

The selections of the contest My Thesis in 180 seconds (MT180) will be held on Wednesday 12 January, Tuesday 18 January and Friday 4 February 2022. 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 public is welcome to listen and encourage the candidates during the selections and nominate his/her favourite candidate. A prize of CHF 200 will be awarded after each selection session (12 January,m 18 January and 4 February) to the candidate selected by the public. Fourteen participants will be selected following the sessions for the EPFL Final which will take place on 24 March 2022.
COVID Certificate required to access the room.
