Calling all Spinal Cord Injury Researchers
SCI Research Writing Prize
If you’re a spinal cord injury researcher or clinician, we’re asking you to write about your research in a creative way. This is an opportunity to present the research you’re working on or have completed, to a broad-ranging, non-scientific audience.
Your entry must be an easy-to-understand and compelling piece about published and/or in-progress spinal cord injury research for non-scientific readership.
Spinal cord injury research is being conducted around the world, in developed and developing nations, and we understand that writing in English may be challenging for those whose first language is not English. The Spinal Research Institute is committed to supporting researchers and clinicians from diverse backgrounds and we encourage those for whom English is an additional language to apply.
Workshop: All shortlisted entrants will be offered a place in a workshop that explores research translation and impact, facilitated by Australian course provider Research Impact Academy. This workshop will comprise 3 x 2hr sessions and it will be held online.
Publication: Shortlisted entries will be featured in this year’s edition of “Why Research Matters” a non-scientific publication that showcases international spinal cord research.
Competition open: 20 July 2022
Competition close: 31 August 2022 at 11.59 pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
