Ma thèse en 180 secondes 2024

The contest “Ma thèse en 180 secondes” allows French-speaking doctoral students to talk about their research work to a non-specialist audience by learning how to explain a complex subject in simple terms.

The registrations for the 2024 Czech selection are open until February 19th. It is open to any French speaking PhD students enrolled in a Czech university for the current academic year (2023-2024), or those who have obtained their doctorate after August 2023. In a maximum of three minutes, candidates will have to present their thesis in French, using a single slide and try to convince the jury and the public. From mathematics and literature to biology and architecture, all themes are accepted.

This year, the competition is organised for the Czech Republic by Charles University, the association Gallica and the French Institute in Prague. The best candidates of the Czech selection will be able to take part in the Central Europe finale, which will take place in Budapest on June 6th.

As the competition takes place exclusively in French, it is asked to communicate in French.
