On April 7, 2016, the Office of the Provost and the Center for Research Innovation will host Northeastern University’s annual research, innovation and scholarship expo (RISE) for the fifth consecutive year!
With over 900 student and faculty presenters, 400 innovative projects and more than 2,000 attendees, RISE continues to be the largest expo of its kind.
The unique nature of the event enables participants to gain new practical skills and real life experience while providing extremely valuable networking opportunities to all. RISE enthusiasts recognize the significance of the expo as a chance to experience the passion and entrepreneurial spirit of the Northeastern community in one place. From engineering to architecture to law and business, every Northeastern college has been represented at RISE making it a very diverse and inclusive event.
What really sets RISE apart from other research expos is its focus on integrating innovation and entrepreneurship to scholarly research. RISE projects are focused on providing solutions to real-life challenges. This is especially highlighted on the expo floor in Innovation Alley which features a select group of projects with notable commercial potential.
Each year, RISE attracts a growing number of renowned industry leaders as judges; 100% of the expo judges are investors, entrepreneurs and executives from over 30 industries.
With new initiatives to launch at RISE:2016, this year’s event promises to be more exciting than ever before! Come and celebrate 5 years of innovation at Northeastern on April 7, 2016.
