What is the Research Impact Competition?

The Research Impact Competition is a university led initiative to highlight research activity across the university, giving researchers experience in presenting their research to non-specialist audiences in a 5 minute pitch with the opportunity to win a $5K research grant.  This is open to Levels A, B and C who are active researchers who have published in the past 18 months.
