Training Schedule for P4F

The research you do today or in the future, potentially has the power to change people’s lives – but only if they know about it and understand how it applies to them.

In a recent Canberra Times article, University of Canberra scientist, Professor Janine Deakin ranked communication skills as the number one ‘soft skill’ needed by researchers and academics because it can ensure your work gets heard.

The Pitch for Funds (P4F) program (below) is a research communication training ground, where you will learn how to get your research on the radar of potential customers, supporters and beneficiaries and grab the attention of investors and collaborators.

At the end of the training program there will be a chance to present your research to the public and win prize money.
