Your PhD in 2 minutes!

From the makers of PhD Comics….

This is essentially a competition to communicate your research in an accessible way. It’s part of my life to encourgae researchers to do this, I’ve written about communication here and here. That’s why I’m glad that Jorge Cham is raising the bar and injecting a bit of fun into the process.

Focussing on why and taking the time to be creative without dumbing down are two key ingredients for engagement about the research we do.

The 2 minute thesis competition is now over and the winners and entries can all be found here:
