Inspire Australia Research Competition - EMCR Forum and Thinkable.org

With government funding cuts to science, success rates and job security for Australia's early to mid-career researchers are at an all-time low.  The Australian Early to Mid-Career Researcher Forum of the Australian Academy of Science has launched an 'Inspire Australia' video research competition to showcase innovative research being performed in laboratories and universities across Australia by emerging research leaders.

There's current a prize pool of $9000 but we need community help to grow our community chest.  As the community pool grows, more early to mid-career researchers can be supported to pursue projects from health, the environment and the economy.  Anyone can vote to help decide the winners, along with our invited expert judges.  Instead of winner takes all, researchers are funded based on a proportional representation of the votes. This allows us to distribute the community chest prize pool widely through their research organisations to use towards their research.

Applications close 10 July. Find out more here: https://www.thinkable.org/competition/15
