December 5, 2017

We are excited to announce that student applications are now being accepted for the second-annual Applied Research & Innovation Day taking place on Thursday, April 5, 2018. Students have a chance to display your research, meet potential employers, and win over $3,000 in cash prizes!
The event organizing committee is accepting student projects broadly based around research and innovation.
Student projects will be divided into three streams this year:

  1. Students who worked with or for an external partner/client
  2. Student-led work with no external partner/client
  3. Student startups (ie. students working on a business idea)

Projects by recent graduates will be considered. (Accepting projects completed by no earlier than 2016).

About ARI Day 2018
Applied Research & Innovation Day is an opportunity to showcase the applied research taking place at the College. Over 600 participants attended the event last year including students, industry representatives, government officials, and community members.
During the morning Student Research Showcase, at least 30 student research projects will be on display in the Notre Dame Campus hallways. Students will be making quick pitches to guest judges, who will be grading student projects based on research quality, communications skills, and other criteria.
The Top 4 student projects will be announced later that morning and invited to present their research to our industry luncheon with an audience of over 200 people. Upward of $3,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the top projects.
Interested in Participating?
Students interested in participating in ARI Day 2018 should submit an application form no later than March 15, 2018. We have also developed a Step-by-Step Guide for students to help you prepare for the event. Click here to view student posters and project descriptions from last year to give you some inspiration.
