Annual research celebration promises to resonate
From March 4 to 8, UBC’s Okanagan campus will be immersed in a celebration of research.
Themed Resonate, this year’s Celebrate Research Week showcases the extraordinary knowledge being created in the Okanagan and how its impact is being felt at home and around the world.
A new event will be featured on March 4 — Research Matters — which will showcase four UBC experts, each delivering a short talk on their research and why it matters. Mid-week, 12 undergraduate and 12 graduate students will compete for fun, fame and prizes at the Research Rodeo.
The week culminates with the Celebrate Research Gala, an inspirational afternoon of presentations and awards, including Researcher of the Year and the Research Rodeo winners.
