Applications will be open till 1st October 2021.
Twenty videos will be selected to appear on the IFNS website, and the authors will be entered in a live competition. The three winning speakers will receive plaques during the 7th International Congress of Nematology in Antibes, France (1-6 May 2022) and an ICN 2022 bursary will be awarded to the highest winner not already in receipt of a bursary.
The objective of this IFNS 3MT® competition is to cultivate student academic and research communication skills, and to enhance overall awareness of nematodes and the science of nematology. The applicants are expected to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
