Research and Innovation Showcase 2024

On Tuesday, March 19, 2024, the Office of Research Services (ORS) held a Research Showcase in the conference centre at KPU's Surrey campus.

The free event put the spotlight on the remarkable strides towards a sustainable future achieved by KPU researchers and students. The all-day event focused on sustainability themes as they relate to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG).

The keynote presentation, Becoming a ‘Civic University’: Place-based Approaches for Sustainable Research Development and Engagement, was delivered by Dr. Garrett-Petts, Professor and Special Advisor on Integrated Strategic Planning at Thompson Rivers University (TRU).

The event proceeded with presentations by Dossou Assogba, JoAnne Marlow, and Sue Fairborn before student research poster presentations and a final round of eight lightning talks (only seven minutes each) and concluding with an interactive booth/networking hour.
