The Australian National University is hosting a free Seminar on "Crowd
Funding Your Research" in Canberra, 9:30 AM, 26 August 2014.
Got a great idea for a project? Thought about crowd funding but don't
know where to start?
NECTAR, the Early Career Academic initiative at ANU, has brought
together two experts to share their insights and experiences of using
crowd funding to support research projects.
Dr Melanie Thomson, Lecturer in Molecular Medicine at Deakin
University Geelong, has successfully crowdfunded 2 research projects:
Mighty Maggots in 2013 and Hips 4 Hipsters in 2014.
Mr Prashan Paramanathan is Founder and CEO of the not-for-profit
crowd funding platform chuffed.org, a platform focused on non-profit and
social enterprise projects.
