• Are you a post-graduate or post-doc researcher?
  • Are you looking to enhance your skills in industry engagement?
  • Are you researching something you would love to share with the wider world?

We have redesigned how Research@Locate will be facilitated in 2020. You will have an opportunity to participate in a half-day innovation session at Market Day and build your engagement skills. During the session you will:

  • Learn about methods for engaging with industry and government
  • Practice these methods through collaboration activities with market stall holders
  • Learn techniques for effective pitching
  • Refine your skills and develop a killer pitch, which you will present to an expert panel
  • Have an opportunity to win a pitch competition

If you are interested in participating in Research@Locate, please submit a one-page proposal – pitching your research for industry – to the Research@Locate submission site via the ASIERA website. In your proposal you should define:

  • How do you describe your research domain to non-experts (i.e. what is your “elevator pitch”?)
  • What problems is your research offering to solve?
  • What solutions does your research offer?
  • Which industry groups and/or government agencies might benefit most from your research?
