"My thesis in 180 seconds" Competition allows PhD students to present the complexities of their research in French, in an engaging and accessible way before a live audience. It aims to develop scientific talent, to reveal an ability to disseminate research, raise awareness of the importance of science-society dialogue, and thus to foster the vocational integration of PhD students.
