    Abstract

    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 mining 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? Read on to find out!
