About the 5th Annual Research Forum

Date and Time: Wednesday April 8th, 2020 | 2:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Locations: Design Thinking Space (AW207), Indigenous Knowledge Research Centre (IKRC) and BMO-Centre for Innovation and Applied Research (CIAR)

This research poster exhibition showcases and celebrates the exciting accomplishments of our students and faculty in advancing research and innovation across all disciplines. Organized by the Office of Research Services, the Research Forum provides an opportunity for CUE students and some faculty members to present their research and exchange research ideas and results with the broader university community, as well as industry professionals, and guests.

2nd Student Poster Competition

Participant students in the Research Forum will automatically be entered in the Student Poster Competition. Posters will be judged by a panel throughout the event (schedule will be provided), and three prizes will be awarded for each category (Undergraduate Student and Graduate Student). Winners will be announced at the end of the event, and will have 5 minutes to present their posters to their peers.

Refreshments will be served and there will plenty of time to meet and engage with guests and presenters. This is an “open-house” event.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact research@concordia.ab.ca.
