To mark Research and Innovation Month, Clemson University has hosted several events — and several more are planned.
“Research and Innovation Month (RIM) is an opportunity to display all of Clemson’s research accomplishments, including those that on their own don’t always make national news,” Barbara Speziale, associate director for academic affairs at Clemson's Watt Family Innovation Center, said. “RIM advertises research events taking place throughout the Clemson system — at our off-campus facilities, as well as on campus.”
Research and Innovation Month has been set aside at Clemson to showcase projects of both students and faculty members.
“The research on display during Research and Innovation Month reflects the work necessary to achieve this significant and prestigious honor, and it reflects our very talented undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff who contributed to the work,” Tanju Karanfil, VP for research at Clemson, said.
Events still to come are "The Next Step," a 12-speaker discussion on science as well as personal and social lives, which will take place at the Watt Family Innovation Center April 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Fulbright Day on April 18, during which a spokesperson for the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars will visit various locations on the Clemson campus between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.; and a May 4 research symposium titled "A Transdisciplinary Culture of Research," an all-day event that will take place at the Watt Family Innovation Center.
