The event was held live via Microsoft Teams on 18 June 2020, with 14 presentations from postgraduate research students who had been selected to represent their Schools and Faculties. The standard of the presentations was incredibly high and all competitors did a fantastic job of engaging their audience remotely with just 3 minutes and 1 slide to explain their research.
Last year’s competition started with Faculty heats leading to a University-wide final on 25 June 2019. The winners were:
VITae Heat 3MT Winner 2019

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the 2020 Conference will take place online during the week commencing 20 July 2020. Further details of the arrangements will follow shortly.
