Experience game-changing innovation and entrepreneurial spirit at RISE:2016

Each year, in an effort to support Northeastern University’s commitment to use-inspired research and solution focused innovation, hundreds of students and faculty members embark on an exciting opportunity to showcase the research and innovative thinking of the Northeastern community at the Research, Innovation, and Scholarship Expo (RISE). This exhibit is a large sample of the breadth and depth of innovative thinking at Northeastern University as well as a celebration of scholarly research and fundamental discoveries that can be translated into real-world applications. Since its inception in 2012, RISE continues to break records and attract unprecedented visibility for the University’s innovation community.

Continue to experience RISE at the Reach Awards Reception where you can further network with presenters, judges and attendees while enjoying the notorious RISE dessert bar! The Reception continues with the presentation of the Outstanding Student Research Awards as well as the RISE Awards for Research, Innovation, Scholarship and Entrepreneurship.


“RISE is a unique opportunity to explore the diversity of thought housed within the Northeastern innovation community. As the largest event of its kind in the nation, there is something here that will inspire just about everyone in the innovation economy.  With researchers, students, entrepreneurs, investors and global companies co-mingling around innovation, exciting synergies are bound to emerge.”
