Event Details

Pitch for Funds Competition


Practical solutions to real world problems 


UC researchers.


90 seconds each.


$12,000 in prize money.


Join us for an evening of excitement and edutainment as we watch our University of Canberra (UC) Researchers ‘Pitch for Funds’.


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


They are all working towards making the world a better place through their research, but there is only thing stopping them; money (lack of!).


On the night, accompanied by a single PowerPoint slide and/or prop, our researchers will try to convince the judges to invest real money in their project, from a total prize pool of AUD $12,000.


We look forward to seeing you there.
