You are invited to join industry leaders, students, instructors and researchers for our third-annual Applied Research & Innovation Day to celebrate student applied research and our research partnerships at Red River College (RRC).

Previous ARI Days were hugely successful, drawing more than 600 participants from industry, government, the College itself and our broader community.

This year, we will be showcasing some of the best applied research projects taking place at RRC. Students will have a chance to display research, meet potential employers, and win cash prizes. The event will once again be emceed by Ace Burpee, and will be in a reception-style with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

Guests will have the opportunity to tour the following RRC hubs of innovation:

We will conduct two tours of each facility, beginning at 6:15 p.m. and ending at 7:30 p.m.
