The inaugural Research Photography Competition, which aims to showcase some of the exciting research happening at ECU, was held in the lead up to Research Week 2014.
At the 2014 ‘Your Research in a Nutshell’ and ‘One Minute to Pitch It’ competitions audience members and judges heard about a wide range of cutting edge research being undertaken at ECU.
Three Minute Thesis (3MT™)
The 3MT is a research communication competition where Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Candidates have three minutes to explain their research and its significance. 3MT provides a unique opportunity to profile and celebrate the innovative research conducted by research candidates at ECU and from around the world.
Your Research in a Nutshell
This competition is for ‘early-career’ researchers at ECU who will battle it out to communicate their contemporary research/creative outputs ‘in a nutshell’. Be part of the audience and hear about ECU’s cutting-edge research.
