Announcing the 2017 Five Minute Research Pitch (5RP).
Clearly and creatively communicate your research and its significance to inspire the community and your peers and potentially win a research account of up to $5,500!
Are you an early – mid career researcher (Level A, B or C) and excited about your research?
Are you looking for an opportunity to share your enthusiasm and inspire a broad audience?
Do you want to test your communication skills in social and mass media?
Would you like to boost your research funds by up to $5,500?
Then you need to get a five minute power-packed presentation together with up to 3 slides and enter the Five Minute Research Pitch (5RP) by 9 October! Every year researchers from universities across Australia compete for prizes by showcasing their research in a way that everyone can comprehend, appreciate and be inspired by.
You could go to that international conference, pay the publishing fees for your next book, buy that equipment you always wanted, or hire a RA to help you collect data. It’s up to you!
During October, ACU will be running heats live across our campuses and two finalists (one from each discipline grouping of Sciences, and Health and Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences) will have an all expenses-paid trip to the Melbourne campus of Central Queensland University to present at the 5RP National Finals. Register your interest by completing the Expression of Interest form and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org (Subjects Line: 5RP EOI).
Expressions of Interest need to be submitted by Monday 9 October.
For more detailed information on the 5RP, Guidelines and ACU Heats and Finals please see the 5RP Event Information.
