The InSPiR2eS Global Pitching Research competition (IGPRC) is built on Professor Robert Faff’s (2015) Pitching Research Tool, which provides a framework for researchers to effectively communicate their research ideas to an academic field expert in a compelling, succinct manner prior to embarking on the project. The competition, is a way for current or early career researchers to put their pitching skills to the test against other researchers around the world

Pitches are submitted and then reviewed by a panel of judges; with prizes being awarded across a range of categories to recognise and stimulate research efforts around the globe
