About ARI Day 2018
Applied Research & Innovation Day is an opportunity to showcase applied research and innovation 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, some 30 to 40 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.
