This year, the SeeDS (Symposium of Ecology and Evolution Doctoral Students) known for being a relaxed and friendly science meeting, will take place the 27th of November at the University of Lausanne. Targeting graduate students (but open to everyone), the SeeDS comes back with a complete new formula.
Borrowed from our friends from the University of Queensland, Australia, we took the gamble to adopt the THREE MINUTE THESIS (3MT®) concept. As the name suggests, we invite graduate students and their supervisors to present their research in three minutes.
Since three minutes is not much to explain many years of work, the speaker has to be concise and light on details. This is an unique opportunity for you to develop your capacity to quickly explain your research to all kinds of audience, from your parents to your future funder. One more time: three minutes is not much, but this leaves time to have a lot more speakers than in a typical meeting, so it provides more opportunity for you to present your incredible work!
This course is a great and fun way to improve your science communication skills and you'll learn tips and tricks to become a great speaker!
Provisional Program coming SOON!
