2023 Early Career Researchers Competition

We want to hear about your research and why it matters! 

The Early Career Researchers Competition is the annual competition run by the Cooperative Research Australia (CRA) celebrating research and challenging early career researchers to enhance their communication skills, receive peer reviews, and gain skills surrounding presentation of their research to a broad audience. 

Introduce your project to us in one minute and you could win a trip to Adelaide to present your work at Collaborate Innovate 2023, 10-12 July, the annual conference of CRA.

If you are chosen as a finalist, you will be asked to create a five-minute thesis presentation that clearly explains your research and how it can be applied to a non-specialist audience. 

The three best entries will get: 

  • A trip to Adelaide with airfares, transfers, conference registration and all social events, including the Gala Dinner and Excellence in Innovation Awards (value $3,000) 
  • The opportunity to give a five-minute thesis presentation on your work at Collaborate Innovate 2023 
  • The chance to win $5,000
