The Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation (FCRi) has organised an interuniversity competition aimed at doctoral students from any discipline. The challenge is to describe their research project in a maximum of 4 minutes in simple language that can easily be understood by members of the general public.
The competition will be held in two stages. In the first stage, every participating university will hold its own internal disqualifying call with the aim of selecting the candidate who will represent each individual university. In the second stage, the FCRi will organise the final public part of the competition to be held between all universities in Catalonia.
This will take place in June. Based on the terms and conditions of the competition organised by the FCRi, the UIC Barcelona Doctoral School now announces a call for the following internal competition: Describe your thesis in 4 minutes. .
