The 3-Minutes thesis competition offered the participants the opportunity to present their research work in a simple and plain language under 3-minutes. This was intended to support the participants to apply the knowledge and skills acquired during the training session on research/science communication and public engagement.

Following fantastic and excellent presentations, three judges, drawn from varied academic and professional backgrounds, rated three participants as winners of the 2nd National 3-Minutes Thesis Competition.

They were:

  1. Caroline Dinam Badzi (Winner; University of Ghana),
  2. Ing. Joseph Yankyera Kusi (First Runner-up; University of Energy and Natural Resources)
  3. Silas Sibon Sebire (Second Runner-up; Lancaster University-Ghana).

They were awarded research-support grant of 1000, 600 and 400, respectively.

The participants expressed satisfaction in the program and were grateful to REGIG for the opportunity to be trained and compete in research communication.

The NaReC program is designed to equip the research community in Ghana with the requisite skills and competencies to effectively communicate research findings to the general public and other stakeholders in a simple, non-technical language to support informed decision making and behavioral changes.

The 2nd NaReC program is a two-part event comprising training in research communication and public engagement as well as 3-minutes thesis competition. The training program was facilitated by Dr Samuel Adjorlolo (Executive Director of REGIG) and Dr Daniel Lawer Egbenya (Head of Knowledge and Technology Transfer of REGIG).
