Students are invited to participate in the CRCA’s ( Cooperative Research Centres Association) annual Early Career Researchers competition.
The competition prizes include $5,000 for the winner and $1,000 for each finalist (full details on the website). Entry into the competition will require a 30-second video in which the participant pitches their research, and each finalist will need to deliver a 5-minute oral presentation at our Collaborate | Innovate | 2019 conference in Adelaide. The emphasis here is on clear and compelling communication rather than video editing. There is a limit of 10 entries per supporting member.
To ensure all participants are able to put their best foot forward, Dr Will Grant of the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS) has generously agreed to run a free webinar on fast and engaging communication. The webinar will take place on Friday 15 February at 11:30am and run for one hour.
All interested ECRs are welcome and encouraged to RSVP at this link:
The principles taught in the webinar will help ECRs when it comes to putting together a strong 30-second video pitch for entering the competition, as well as a 5-minute oral presentation should they be selected as finalists.
A link will be sent to registered attendees on the morning of 15 February.
