Save the Date: Annual Research Showcase May 3, 2014

Our fifth annual "Research Showcase and Outreach to Community" event will take place at Devonshire Mall on Saturday, May 3, 2014.

We are planning on showcasing University of Windsor research activities currently taking place at the University and are eager to give researchers and their teams an opportunity to put on interactive exhibits and hands-on demonstrations related to their research.

We are inviting faculty, graduate and undergraduate students to be involved in this event. It is an important event to reach out within our community and to highlight the excellent research that is taking place locally. We look forward to your participation.

Please contact Sharon Hayes-Racicot in the Office of Research and Innovation Services if you are interested in participating in this community outreach event at sracicot@uwindsor.ca or Ext. 3916.
