Since 2015, Pompeu Fabra University PhD school has organized the Rin4' championship. This is a competition in which PhD students give an oral presentation of their research, within 4 minutes,  to a non-specialized audience. 

The competition has four different category prizes. Furthermore, this is the first year in which the winner will have the right to participate in the Catalan competition "Tesis en 4 minuts", organized by the Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació with the support of the Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia). All the Catalan universities take part in this competition. The winner of the 1st Edition of the FCRI, which took place in June 2018, was the representative of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
