In this paper, I explain the What, Why, How, Who, and When of the IGPRC2023. In brief … First, What? Following on from the great success of the inaugural InSPiR2eS Global Pitching Research Competition (IGPRC) event in 2021-22, founded on Faff’s (2015, 2021) Pitching Research Framework (PRF), the goal is to conduct a second edition of the global Pitching Research competition in 2023. Second, Why? We aim to further deliver on the underlying mission and vision of InSPiR2eS – namely, to globally facilitate research training & capacity building, resting on the foundation theme of “responsible science”. Moreover, this coincides with and celebrates the launch of InSPiR2eS Centre for Responsible Science (IC4RS, see Faff, 2023). Third, How? We invite written pitch entries to IGPRC2023 via a range of avenues including country-coordinated efforts, that lead to a semi-final pool of initial winners, which in turn are ultimately distilled to an online TOP six Grand Finale event. We explain details including prize money and awards, headlined by a minimum $AUD5,000 prize for the ultimate IGPRC2023 winner. Fourth, Who? We explain the important eligibility criteria that encompass valid entries from research-enabled undergraduates, research-focused students and ECRs. Finally, When? The competition has a range of phases, spanning the period March – December 2023.
