Project Pitch Session

This year the project pitch session is returning! Bring your ideas to a small-group brainstorming session. Once you've hashed out your project aims, objectives and more, your group will present your pitch to fellow delegates and get a chance to exchange ideas and different perspectives on building your project. If chosen, RADIANT could help grow your project into our next high-quality research publication, and will support you in spearheading the project should you wish to continue your involvement! So if you have an idea for a project that you want to develop and even lead, join us!

Don't have a research project in mind? Don't worry! This is a collaborative session, designed to get delegates of all levels of experience involved. Come along, hear from other trainees, and contribute to the small-group session to develop their ideas. You may even be inspired by the many RADIANT projects we will be showcasing at our event and come up with an idea on the day!If any of the successful pitches interest you, you will get the opportunity to get involved or even lead these projects.

Take a look at our guide to help you prepare your pitch:

  • Explain the background to the issue/condition/intervention being researched.

  • What is the overall aim of your study?

  • Why is it important?

  • What information are you trying to acquire?

  • What are your inclusion and exclusion criteria?

  • Will you need to gain patient consent?

  • How will you collect and store data?

  • Will this need ethical permission, if so from who?

  • How will this study be funded?

  • Who would supervise this project?

  • Timeline - can this be achieved in <12 months? If not, how long do you estimate this project will take?
