Zerina Kurtovic (ESR5) participates in a 3-MT competition

One of the aims of the 3-MT competition is to challenge PhD students to present their research to a non-scientific audience in 3 minutes. The idea is to explain one’s project in an understandable manner without dumbing it down. BH 3-MT is the first time a competition of this type was organized in Bosnia and Herzegovina and it was truly a pleasure to try to disseminate my research to people in my home country. It was a particularly joyful experience because I contributed to putting science on the agenda of public discussion. I feel really honored to have won 1st Prize in the Public Voting part of the competition with more than 4K likes on YouTube and 15K views. You can watch my video on the following link:
