Event Date

UC Davis Student Community Center Multipurpose Room

In March 2022 the College of Engineering launched the Next Level Research Startup awards to support bold ideas in alignment with our research strategic vision. That year, ten projects received funding for research, conferences, and networking. 

Please join us as we now hear from the 2023 Next Level Research Startup Award recipients about advancements in research, lessons learned, and challenges that lie ahead. We will also feature flash talks highlighting the diverse array of research endeavors within our engineering community, announce the 2024-25 award cycle, and host a networking reception.
