Event description

Description

This talk outlines and explains a simple template tool/device, designed to encourage clarity and transparency of idea exchange between two (or more) collaborating researchers, in the crucial early, embryonic stages of such a relationship. The "pitching research" ("PR") tool is especially useful for "starting a conversation" between novice researchers and their (potential) academic mentors. The PR tool is designed to be structured /simple/methodical /clear/focused, in a way that efficiently and effectively facilitates relevant and meaningful dialogue between research collaborators. It serves as a highly relevant and practical academic resource, for use across a wide range of subject matter and research areas, as well as diverse levels of research training and mastery. Having explained the elements, connectivity and basic philosophy underlying the PR tool, the talk will conclude with a "narrated" example to illustrate its utility & power. [The "PR" paper is available at: https://ssrn.com/abstract=2462059]
