In each of 2015 and 2016, a “pitching research” competition was held at the University of Queensland, sponsored by the UQ Association of Postgraduate Students (UQuAPS). The UQuAPS events are truly comprehensive – they capture the full spectrum of academic discipline areas: from mechanical engineering to…tourism to…virology in 2015 and from human movements to…chemistry to…medicine in 2016. But what have we learned over these two editions? How can we make the 2017 event even bigger and better?
