The first annual Innov8 Awards will recognize excellence in research, innovation and change-making ideas presented by students or student teams at RISE 2021.

The competition will be judged using a rubric provided by the Innov8 Awards Panel. More details will be made available to all accepted applicants. There will be $150 prizes for the winners!

You’ll also have the opportunity to check out the Manufacturing Innovation Summit, sponsored by the Business Development Bank of Canada. Join forward-thinking manufacturing leaders to share ideas and take away practical insights to harness the power of innovation.
