Research Week

Research Week - Research Beyond Boundaries

2nd - 4th April 2019

The Office of Research is pleased to launch UNBC Research Week. A celebration of the increasingly innovative and collaborative research that happens at UNBC and beyond. The week will consist of various events which celebrate and showcase the groundbreaking and interdisciplinary research on and beyond the UNBC campus. The aim is to bring researchers from various disciplines together and create a favorable atmosphere for developing innovative research ideas. Research Week is an amalgamation of the UNBC Graduate Conference, Undergraduate Research Experience (URE) Celebration and Postdoc Day of Research events. Further to support the Interior University Research Coalition (IURC) between UNBC, TRU and UBCO, researchers from TRU and UBCO will be invited to present their research.

The theme of the 2019 Research Week is ‘Research Beyond Boundaries’. The three-day event will allow attendees and participants to experience and showcase research at all levels and in all disciplines from a diverse group of researchers who engage and collaborate from the local to the global scale. Exploring various areas of research through a variety of research approaches, our researchers are reaching beyond boundaries and changing lives.

Let’s celebrate research. Be inspired, form new collaborations and learn what is happening on campus and beyond.

  • Undergraduate Student Presentations – Poster Presentations
