Today’s the day—RISE:2017, Northeastern’s Research, Innovation, and Scholarship Expo. The annual event showcases the breadth and depth of the research and entreprenurial spirit of our students and faculty across many disciplines.
We’ll be live blogging throughout the day to share with you participants’ projects, innovations, stories, and much more.
Here’s what you need to know about RISE this year. The expo will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Cabot Cage. Some 2,000 industry leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, and technology enthusiasts will engage with more than 400 of Northeastern’s solution-focused innovations. And, better than 100 industry judges will review the submissions and select award winners.
The expo will be followed by an awards ceremony at 3 p.m. in East Village. Awards will be given to students in seven categories, and there will also be four RISE Awards for showing excellence in each of the following areas: research, innovation, scholarship, and entrepreneurship. There will be a Graduate Innovator award and an award for the best video pitch, as well.
Our blog will also feature a compilation of social media posts about RISE from throughout the day, and you can follow RISE on Twitter using #RISE2017 and #GotResearch.
