Facilitated by Professor Robert Faff (University of Queensland) This talk presents and outlines a research pitch tool targeting non-academic external stakeholders in which engagement and impact (E&I) is deemed to be an important objective. Using Faff’s (2015, 2017) pitching research template as a base (first phase pitch), the E&I (second phase) pitch retains the underlying philosophy of the original academic tool. The main purpose of the original pitch template is “starting a conversation” with an academic expert and to make the initial research proposal as “future proof” as it can be. The current paper makes a first stab at extending the pitching concept to the often more challenging (concomitant) goal of orientating one's research toward relevant non-academic stakeholders - i.e. to think about the non-academic engagement and impact of a proposed new research project, while maintaining its goal to achieve quality academic output.
