PhD-students Anil Kshatriya, Elisabeth Jäckel and Thu Nguyen participated in the UvA 3MT competition by delivering their pitches in a video. The competition is organised annually at more than 900 universities in 85 countries. Participants have to present their PhD research to the public in just 3 minutes. Their audience has no prior knowledge of the subject matter. The winner will be announced on 8 September 2022.

An EB jury selected Kshatriya, Jäckel and Nguyen to take part in the UvA finals, where they will compete against 12 doctoral candidates from other faculties. The winner of the finals will then go on to participate in the 3MT global competition. Interested to see our PhD’s pitches? Watch the video pitches they recorded below.
