Liveblog: RISE showcases university’s research and entrepreneurial spirit

Coverage of RISE:2016! Follow the Live Blog!

Today’s the day—RISE:2016, Northeastern’s Research, Inno­va­tion, and Schol­ar­ship Expo. The annual event show­cases the breadth and depth of our stu­dents and fac­ulty mem­bers’ research and entre­pre­neurial spirit across many dis­ci­plines. We’ll be live blog­ging with full coverage—including photos and video—throughout the day to share with you par­tic­i­pants’ projects, inno­va­tions, sto­ries, and much more.

Here’s what you need to know about RISE this year. The expo will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Cabot Cage. There were more than 400 abstract sub­mis­sions for RISE this year. Nine hun­dred stu­dents and fac­ulty will be par­tic­i­pating, and better than 100 industry judges will be reviewing their posters, lis­tening to their pitches, and scoring their video sub­mis­sions. (This year, for the first time, all RISE par­tic­i­pants had to submit a video pitch.)

The expo will be fol­lowed by an awards cer­e­mony from 3 to 5 p.m. in East Vil­lage. Awards will be given to stu­dents in seven cat­e­gories, and there will also be four RISE Awards for showing excel­lence in each of the fol­lowing areas: research, inno­va­tion, schol­ar­ship, and entre­pre­neur­ship. There will be an award for the best video pitch, as well.

Our blog will also fea­ture a com­pi­la­tion of social media posts about RISE from throughout the day, and you can follow RISE on Twitter using #GotResearch.
