The HIRAKU 3MT Competition is an exciting opportunity for doctorate students to effectively explain their research within a limited time-span of three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The Competition aims to develop the doctorates’ presentation and research communication skills, while leading to broader society (as the audience) further enhancing their positive understanding of doctorate resources and researches.
For the first time in three years, this year’s Competition will be conducted on-site (and also be simultaneously live streamed).
Members of the audience who pre-register for the event will have the opportunity to vote and decide the recipient of the People’s Choice Award for the both of the divisions. We are looking forward to your participation.
