5 Minute Research Pitch (5RP)

The 5RP is a great opportunity for researchers to showcase their research to a national audience and be in the running to win funding to support their future research.

Researchers will be required to deliver a five-minute presentation of their current or recently completed research with the aid of three PowerPoint slides. The competition is similar to the 3 Minute Thesis competition run nationally for PhD students.

The competition is open to researchers at Levels A, B, and C. The first place winner in each of the groupings in the Institutional Finals will proceed to the National Finals. The groupings are:

  • Group One – Sciences and Health
  • Group Two – Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences.

Researchers from the following universities will compete at the National Finals hosted by the University of Southern Queensland Springfield campus on Monday 19 November 2018:
