ESRC Wales Doctoral Training Centre– “3MEI” – Three-minute engagement/impact session and prize

We would also like to invite you to enter our 3MEI session. This session is modelled on the well-known ‘Three minute thesis’ format. At the session you are invited to present (using one projected slide and in strictly no more than three minutes) an account of challenges and/or achievements in their research with respect to engagement and/or impact. The ESRC Wales DTC is sponsoring a prize for best ‘3MEI’ in the form of a selection of recent books from two leading social science publishers, up to the value of £150. This will be awarded during the conference. The session will be friendly and informal in nature, and will run alongside the exhibition session at the event.

Rules, Judging Criteria and other top tips can be found here. 

We have a limited number of slots available for this session, so please register to participate in the 3MT Competition before revised deadline: 6th June 2016, by sending an email with 3MEI in the subject box to
