"This event is a well deserved recognition of the scholarly activities taking place here at the University of Rhode Island by some of the institution's researchers from undergraduate students to senior faculty. We will also highlight some of our faculty's efforts in commercializing the various products that stem from their research programs," said Peter Alfonso, vice president for research and economic development and the coordinator of the event. “It will enable everyone on campus and in the community to see what important work is being done here and stimulate collaboration across disciplines on campus and with the business community around the region. It’s really a showcase for the big thinking that is taking place at URI.”
Research posters from faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students will be on display throughout the event.
Individuals who have been invited to present their research are:
-- Faculty who have received awards from the Council for Research for Proposal Development and Career Enhancement;
-- Graduate Students who have received awards from the Graduate Council for Enhancement of Graduate Research;
-- Undergraduate Students who received awards from the Council for Research for the Undergraduate Research Initiative;
-- Research and Intellectual Property Excellence Awards Recipients.
All recipients were awarded in 2012.
We are very pleased that the event includes URI faculty, graduate student and undergraduate student research. The people represented by these groups are of the highest caliber as their research has been peer reviewed to receive the awards. Additionally, their research spans all areas of the university.
