Join UBC Applied Science at Innovate 2014; build new partnerships to generate impact

Join the UBC Faculty of Applied Science for Innovate 2014, an evening of dialogue at UBC Robson Square, Monday September 29 from 5:30-8:00pm. Discover pathways to partnering in an evening of thought-provoking, seven-minute presentations by engineering and architecture faculty. Learn why they are passionate about their research and the impact research has in the community.

“Innovate 2014 is about showcasing the impact of applied research in the community, providing access to leading researchers and enabling dialogue for meaningful connections,” says Applied Science Dean Marc Parlange. “The key message is that we are open to partnering with industry.”

The evening promises to inspire engagement for industry with sectors ranging from mining to information technology to biomedical engineering to forestry. Engineering and architecture faculty will share their research on the future of mining, bio-fuels, clean energy, computer systems, artificial muscles, forest bio-economy, new materials, clean water, financial investment dynamics reshaping cities, and earthquake engineering.

A reception will follow the talks to facilitate networking and inspire dialogue. For more information, please visit
