All Pakistan “Pitching Research” Competition (APPRC) 2017-18

General Information & Timelines

Following on from the great success of University of Queensland’s inaugural Pitching Research competition in 2015, the 2nd edition (2016) and 3rd edition (2017), Professor Robert Faff (Director of Research UQBS) is taking the“ Pitching Research” competition beyond the geographic boundaries of Australia. With support from The University of Haripur Pakistan (UoH), we are very pleased to announce that the competition is being launched in Pakistan.

Core Task
The core task of this competition requires the completion of a prescribed 2-page (1,000 words) template relating to your research project. The template provides a simple, methodical tool to confidently/succinctly “pitch” essential elements of a new research proposal to an academic expert i.e. to your thesis supervisor.

Essential Reading
For an explanation of the pitching template and its use, see the SSRN paper “Pitching Research” [Faff (2017)

The competition is open to students in ALL disciplines, enrolled at any of the universities in Pakistan. Students should ideally be in the first year of a Masters by Research program or in the first two years of the PhD program (eligibility determined as at the time of the opening date for submissions, see below).
