The April 9, 2021 one-day event will emphasize opportunities to grow and develop new collaborations in research, faculty development and graduate student exchanges. The discussions will feature current advances in research, programming and service opportunities in the fields of Chemical Engineering and Kinesiology-Sport Sciences.
The planned sessions are aimed to facilitate networking for faculty and graduate students of both Universities and showcase achievements in research. These presentations will enhance collaboration in projects of mutual interest, with the hope of broadening the scope of interactions to include new programs, departments, schools and colleges within areas such as Business, Management, Liberal Arts, Sciences and more.
Research areas open for discussion
- Chemical Engineering sessions will focus on process systems engineering, renewable energy, polymer processing, shale gas and biogas conversion to produce value-added fuels and chemicals.
- Kinesiology-Sport Sciences sessions will focus on current research advances and efforts to promote healthy and inclusive sport and physical activity environments and application with coaches, athletes and exercisers.
Benefits of participation
Participation will promote networking and interactions with representatives for collaborative research, programming and service opportunities and broaden future exchange visits of faculty and students between the two Universities. Students will gain awareness of graduate research performed in both institutions and expand contacts for potential collaboration with researchers from a first-tier University in Brazil. Additionally, senior undergraduates will discover potential graduate school opportunities.
How to register
Participation is free but requires registration. There is a limited capacity of 250 attendees.
