Launching of the II Research Pitches Contest of the Compostela Group of Universities


The Compostela Group of Universities launches the II Research Pitches Contest, a competition born to promote and recognise the research work carried out in member universities.

Researchers from member universities of the Compostela Group of Universities (CGU) are invited to send their pitches for the competition. Each researcher can present a maximum of one research pitch.

Pitches can be recorded with any kind of device and edited later. In the video the researcher must:

  • Present the subject of the research.
  • Explain how the research contributes to finding solutions.
  • Illustrate the impact that the research will have on society and academic community.


The pitch must be a monologue of a single researcher, who has to be focused all the time, and only three image slides may be used as a support element. Besides, the videos have to comply with technical requirements specified in the guidelines of the II Research Pitches Contest.



How to submit an application?

To submit the application researchers should send the following documents to CGU’s Secretariat:

  • Signed application form.
  • Motivation letter.
  • Pitch presented to the contest.
  • Letter of support from the student home university.

The deadline to submit the applications is 31st March 2018.


A jury, composed by five members, will evaluate the videos according to the criteria detailed on the guidelines and select the winners of the first, second and third prize of the II Research Pitches Contest. The decision of the jury will be revealed during the month of May.

For this edition, the first prize is up to 1000 euro, the second 600 euros and the third 300 euros. The winners will also receive a diploma certifying the prize.
