BCIT Student Innovation and Research Projects : Lots of Big Ideas
DATE: Wednesday, March 8, 2023
TIME: 11:30am – 12:30pm
LOCATION: Summit Centre (Bby Campus Library, room 213)
BCIT students do some great research and innovation projects as part of their programs, and there is funding available to support some of these projects. This presentation will look at some of the funding sources: Mitacs, BCIT Institute Research Funds, Student Innovation Challenge, the types of projects that get funded, and how faculty and students can access this funding.
Joe Boyd is the Research Liaison in BCIT’s Applied Research Liaison Office (ARLO). Joe has a background in Physics and Library studies, and while
at BCIT has sat on a number of funding committees. Joe is also responsible on reporting on BCIT’s research projects by faculty and students. ARLO helps
students and faculty with funding for their projects by identifying funding sources and liaising with external funding agencies. ARLO also runs the BCIT Student Innovation Challenge each year.
This talk is open to all members of the BCIT community. Light lunch provided.
