What is Research Got Talent (RGT)?

Research Got Talent (RGT) is a global competition hosted by ESOMAR that offers young researchers an opportunity to demonstrate how research can make a difference for a charity or NGO. This competition has had eight years of global success showcasing the positive impact of the insights sector and helping give charities across the planet valuable research for their organizations. CRIC runs the RGT competition in Canada to select our national winner. Each country puts forward their respective winners for the global competition. This will be Canada’s fourth year participating.

Who can Participate?

This award competition, led by CRIC, CAIP Canada, and ESOMAR, encourages young researchers (aged 18-29 years) to support charities / non-profit organizations by solving critical social issues with innovative research. Young researchers can participate individually or in a team of two.

How to Participate?

To participate, researchers must first select a Canadian charity or NGO and then design a research proposal that will help make a difference to that charity or NGO. The researcher volunteers their services for the competition and there is no fee for either the researcher or the charity to participate. Social issues to be addressed by the research done by contest participants needs to fall into one or more of the following categories:

– Gender equality
– Impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable communities
– Access to justice
– Access to education
– Improving the lives of persons with disabilities
– Improving the lives of children
– Environmental & Climate change
– Sustainability
– Integration and diversity

To enter your research proposal submission, please complete the Research Got Talent 2024 – Entry Form and submit to [email protected] by end of day on June 14th, 2024.
