Real Shark Tank: Elite researchers Pitch 4 Funds in 90 seconds

What causes children to become picky eaters? What are the challenges black South Africans experience in saving for their retirement? How are chemicals affecting our aquatic systems?

Join us at this year’s Pitch for Funds (P4F), a University of Canberra competition that is designed for elite researchers to pitch their research topic in just ninety seconds and in a way that attracts interest and potential funding from the audience.

With a stellar judging panel watching on, the Canberra community will learn about exciting research taking place at UC and discover how researchers are finding practical solutions to real world problems.

“Researchers are all working towards making the world a better place through their research but need the funds to follow through with it,” said Ms Rosanna McCall, Research Development Advisor at the University.

“This is a great way for industry experts and the Canberra community to come together and hear about the fantastic research being undertaken at the University of Canberra.”

On Thursday 24 October, researchers will try to convince the judges to invest real money in their project, from a total prize pool of $12,000.
