Celebrating research

We take our research seriously, and yet we also love to celebrate the exceptional moments throughout the year when we’re able to appreciate and applaud our researchers in our showcase events. These include the annual three-minute thesis competition, and our series of Professorial Lectures

JCU Singapore 3MT Event

At JCU, we think it is really important to encourage and showcase the research efforts of our higher degree research (HDR) candidates. 3MT develops academic, presentation and research communication skills, while developing research students’ (and academic researchers) ability to explain their research effectively in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Visualisations of research opens myriad ways to capture and convey key messages and findings and substantially increase the reach and potential impact of the research through social and mainstream media, YouTube and other platforms.
