The competition is celebrating its tenth anniversary but the principle remains the same for each doctoral student: three minutes to present their research project in a clear, concise and convincing way to a very large audience.

The 20 doctoral students from the universities and research establishments of the Montpellier Academy presented their research work in front of a large and enthusiastic audience. 300 people were present to attend this final and follow the passionate and popularised performances of the finalists.
