Amplify Ignite

Ignite 2018 - One night. One pitch. One winner.

Amplify Ignite 2018 was held on 14 November in Sydney where 17 outstanding PhD students presented their research to hundreds of people from across the business community in just 150 seconds.

AMP Amplify Ignite is designed to help bridge the communication gap between academia and business, providing students with two training days with professional coaches and mentors to support their development and research.

Ignite’s 2018 winner was Samra Qaraghuli from Flinders University with her research on creating a new family of antibiotics from fungi.

The Peoples Choice award – judged by the audience - was awarded to Art Cruz for his research on detecting concrete cancer in Australian buildings.
