Inaugural Applied Research & Innovation Day a Success

April 18, 2017 • Written by

Over 600 Attend First-Ever Event

Red River College welcomed over 600 visitors to the first-ever Applied Research & Innovation Day on April 6, celebrating student achievements in applied research and innovation while recognizing the College’s innovative research partnerships.

“That was the most exciting event I’ve been to in many years,” said Jeff Ryzner, North Forge President and guest Student Quick-Research Pitch judge, immediately following the event.

“It’s not news that RRC is focused on applied research, but it has never held such a public demonstration of its commitment to that mode of learning,” wrote Winnipeg Free Press business reporter, Martin Cash.

College President Paul Vogt participated in the event and said that judging by what he’d seen, this may be the inaugural event, but it certainly won’t be the last.
