RISE Moves Online
Responding to COVID-19
Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak in Massachusetts, RISE:2020 will be hosted online this year.
The decision to move RISE online has been made for the safety of students, judges, and the general public in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Transforming RISE into a virtual experience is also an expression of resilience — a value Northeastern holds dear.
Overview of Virtual RISE
On Thursday, April 9 from 10:00am to 5:00pm RISE Presenters will pitch their research and creative activity to RISE Judges at scheduled times via Microsoft Teams. A schedule of these pitches will be posted enabling General Attendees to log on and participate as well.
At the close of the day, scores will be tallied, and award winners will be published on the RISE website no later than April 10.
A live Awards Reception bringing Presenters, Judges, and the community together to celebrate will be scheduled in the near term if safety precautions and University policy permit.
