Research Week 2015 Competition Winners Announced

Each year, the Office of Research and Economic Development sponsors Research Week. Researchers from all corners of campus are encouraged to display their work and show visitors the important work they do.

Research Week always features student research-poster competitions, and, for the past couple of years, the 90-Second Video Challenge. A winner is chosen from each school in the poster competitions, and the campus community chooses the video winner, voting online after reviewing the submissions.

Those who win receive cash prizes. Congratulations to this year’s winners!

Inaugural GradSLAM! Event Set to Kick Off

The UC Merced Graduate Division will soon launch GradSLAM!, in which Ph.D. students will hone their public speaking skills before competing against their peers on campus in a research presentation competition. The winner will compete in the first-ever UC systemwide GradSLAM! competition.
 
GradSLAM! is designed to improve students’ abilities to explain their research or creative work to a general audience with poise and confidence. In the competition, students will have three minutes to present their work in front of non-specialist judges.

The challenge is expanding this year to include teams at UC Davis and UC Berkeley.

Winning teams at each school receive up to $1,000 and several have developed their apps further by raising additional funding, creating research initiatives, entering incubators or starting companies.
