Each year at the CRC Association Annual Conference a number of early career researchers are selected to attend and present their research to the conference. Initial entries are submitted in a 30-second video. Finalists give a 5-minute presentation at the conference. The prize money available is $10,000 in total.
The objective of the Early Career Researcher Showcase is to assist in developing academic and research communication skills. The session has proved to be one of the highlights of the Annual Conference in recent years. Prior to 2013 an award was granted in each of 2 categories – a 10-minute science presentation and a 3-minute thesis presentation.
