The landscape for scientists is changing, in the current funding environment scientists are increasingly required to look for funding and partnerships outside the conventional framework to enable them to continue with their research. Developing skills to communicate your ideas beyond your own industry is now more essential than ever for both emerging and established scientists.
WiSPP and NAB have collaborated to provide an opportunity for WiSPP researchers to pitch their research ideas both in 180s video form and live at our shark tank competition on the 17th October. The Perfect Pitch competition brings together a panel of judges from across a range of sectors including media, philanthropy, biotechnology and business.
