Participants present their work in an oral presentation, art display, performance, or film screening.
All current faculty, staff, and students at UNO may participate. All academic disciplines are encouraged to participate.
Students will be eligible for prizes, including the Privateer Choice awards, Tolmas Prize awards, and cash prizes in every category. Those who place in their categories may be invited to the ULS Academic Summit.
Work needs to be completed under the auspices of the University of New Orleans. This includes but is not limited to course/group projects, funded/non-funded projects, and projects completed in conjunction with internships/partnerships that are part of a UNO collaborative.
Throughout the fall semester, the Office of Research will host tutorials for pre-recording presentations for the 2020 virtual symposium.
Registration to present at InnovateUNO ends on September 30, 2020.
Groups must identify one person to be the lead presenter. Only the lead presenter should register through Eventbrite; the lead presenter should list any co-presenters and/or collaborators.
If you are (1) a UNO faculty or staff member, or (2) a UNO graduate student, we'd like you to help us assess our program participants.
Judges will be asked to evaluate participants' presentations using a standardized rubric. You cannot be a judge if you are participating as a presenter.
All judges will be required to attend a judging orientation (schedule TBA).
Registration to serve as a judge ends on October 16, 2020.
The Office of Research, the Graduate School, and the Earl K. Long Library host this program. InnovateUNO is sponsored, in part, by the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust.
