Pitching Research Workshop

Pitching Research Workshop

Pitching Research has inspired many research students and early career researchers around the world. The talk is supported by FBE Research Support Seminar and Workshop Series.

The Pitching Research workshop provides a simple 2-page template tool, SO THAT a novice researcher can confidently and succinctly convey all the essential elements of a new research proposal to an academic expert. Pitching Research helps novice researchers overcome the despair of feeling totally clueless and utterly lost at the beginning of their research journey, and also helps heavily over-committed research mentors overcome the despair of feeling totally confused and mentally swamped by excessive, random and disconnected ideas created by their junior research partners.
