Rocío Jiménez has been the winner of the second edition of the initiative ‘Your Twitter-Thesis in 3 minutes‘ #TTT3M_UHU, endowed with 600 euros, for the video of his thesis on the use of video games for heritage education. The second prize went to Raquel Justo, for her thesis on self-employment and well-being.

The Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit (UCC+i) of the University of Huelva has highlighted the great participation, repercussion and high quality of all the videos that have been submitted to the second edition of the initiative ‘Your Twitter-Thesis in 3 minutes’ #TTT3M_UHU, a contest that has managed to triple the number of participants with respect to the previous edition.

This is a contest promoted by the UCC+i within the framework of the Plan for Scientific Dissemination of the University of Huelva with the aim of promoting scientific vocations and the research career of those who have recently received a doctorate, as well as bringing together the research of doctoral students and doctoral students to citizens, especially the younger population, using direct, simple and enjoyable communication through the social network Twitter, with the publication of a video of no more than 3 minutes in length, in which the participants have had to explain what the research work that motivates his doctoral thesis consists of.

The jury, made up of Reyes Sánchez, director of the OTRI (Office for the Transfer of Research Results) of the UHU, by Elvira Martín del Río, director of the UHU Doctoral School, and by Cristina Nieto, from the Communications Office de la Huelva, has assessed the presentations individually, based on the criteria of synthesis, content, creativity and interaction on Twitter.

Taking these criteria into account, the jury has issued its ruling, deciding to award the first prize, endowed with 600 euros, to Dr. Rocío Jiménez Palacios (@Rociojimenezp), for her video on the thesis ‘Experimentation and analysis of the use of videogames for heritage education. A case study in 1st year of ESO’, and the second prize, endowed with €400, went to Dr. Raquel Justo González (@Raqueljustog), who presented her video ‘Self-employment and well-being: New evidence on Heterogeneity, Satisfaction and Health ‘.

Emphasize everyone’s involvement

Myriam Martín Cáceres, director of the UCC+i of the University of Huelva, wanted to highlight the involvement of all the participants in this “innovative initiative, with which we seek to transfer knowledge in a simple and effective way”, facilitating its understanding for a non-specialized public.

Likewise, it has highlighted the variety of fields of knowledge of the theses presented, with the “participation of seven different doctoral programs from Experimental, Engineering, Education, Psychology, Economics, Humanities and Law”. Likewise, Martín Cáceres has influenced the success that he has meant, in this case, “adapting disclosure to new times and technologies”, using a social network such as Twitter to publicize the scientific-research talent at the University.
