The HIRAKU 3MT Competition is an exciting opportunity for doctorate students to effectively explain their research within a limited time-span of three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The Competition aims to develop the doctorates' presentation and research communication skills, while leading to broader society (as the audience) further enhancing their positive understanding of doctorate resources and researches.
The Competition is held as a part of the initiatives of the consortium program, "Home for Innovative Researchers and Academic Knowledge Users (HIRAKU)" , with the cooperation of national, public and private universities in Western Japan (mainly in the Chugoku/Shikoku regions), as well as various companies and public institutions. This Competition has been held annually since 2015, and since 2022, all doctoral students enrolled in universities in Japan were eligible.
