Join the UBC Faculty of Applied Science for Innovate 2015, an evening of dialogue at UBC Robson Square. On Monday, October 20 from 5:30-8:30pm, discover pathways to partnering in an evening of thought-provoking, seven-minute presentations by engineering, nursing and planning faculty. Learn why they are passionate about their research and the impact research has in the community.

“Innovate 2015 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. “We recognize the importance of bringing research out of the lab and into the hands of the people and businesses of British Columbia. The key message is that we are open to partnering with industry.”

The evening promises to inspire engagement for industry with topics ranging from clean energy to dependable software systems to naval architecture to senior’s care. Engineering, nursing and planning faculty will share their research on the future of manufacturing materials, clean energy, software systems, green bio-products, integrated water management, naval architecture and marine engineering, senior’s care, and urban systems.
