Workshop for PhD Students: “Pitching Research Matters” – with Prof. Robert Faff (Open Session)

This workshop provides a primer on the “Pitching Research” framework [PRF] – a research planning framework that challenges (novice) researchers to communicate their early research ideas effectively to an academic field expert.
2024.05.03. 10:00
Budapesti Corvinus Egyetem

Date: 3 May 2024 Friday, 10:00-12:00 

Location: Institute of Finance – Corvinus Main Building (E.279.1) 

Language: English 


The PRF aims to lay a solid and basic foundation stone, simultaneously serving as:  

  • a scaffolding device for building early confidence 
  • an enduring compass for all researchers on the “hazardous” journey of scientific discovery 
  • a simple enabling tool to convey research plans in line with the principles of “Responsible Science”.
