The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition was initially developed by the University of Queensland in 2008, soon followed by other Australian and New Zealand universities, culminating in the first Trans Tasman competition held in 2010. 3MT®has spread internationally: from Tokyo, London, Edinburgh, Vienna, to Vancouver and now Ontario. UBC ran the first Canadian competition in 2011; Queen’s and Western held competitions in 2012, challenging sister institutions to join in a province-wide competition.

Brock's winner advances to the inaugural Ontario 3MT® contest
The inaugural Ontario 3MT® competition will be hosted by Queen’s University on April 18, 2013. Future competitions will the held at McMaster University (2014) and Western University (2015).
A provincial competition will bring together students from across Ontario and across multiple disciplines and provide them with a unique opportunity to learn about each other’s research activities. In addition to hearing presentations, graduate students will have ample opportunity to discuss more fully their research with other presenters, graduate students and faculty who attend the event. In addition to contributing in this way to a province-wide research culture, the provincial competition also encourages the development of professional skills for graduate students.
