The competition “Present your thesis in 4 minutes” is organised by the FCRI with the support of the Government of Catalonia and the 12 Catalan universities. The competition challenges PhD students in any scientific discipline to explain their research to a non-specialist audience in four minuts or less with easy to comprehend language.

The competition consists of two stages: a preliminary round in every participating university, and a final event to be held among the finalists form each Catalan university.
