The aim of the 5-minute pitch session, is to share some of the work the SIG is doing and find out if others are interested. They are intended to be informal and may or may not involve PowerPoint.
Some of the pitches offered will be taken forward to inform group work in the afternoon session. Others may be ‘rolled over’ to form the basis of subsequent meetings, and/or discussions continued online.
Please email: if you would like to offer a 5-minute pitch for discussion during the afternoon session.
Examples of pitches already offered:
