Through education sessions, networking, and a series of mini-challenges, Innovation UBC’s Research Impact Challenge participants have received support from the Innovation UBC network to start moving their idea towards generating impact. 

Join us on May 6 from 4:30-6:00 pm to see our teams pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and compete for cash prizes, accolades and professional services. Vote for your favourite pitch in our Audience Choice Award.

Pitches cover ideas aimed at mitigating spinal-cord injuries and genetic skin diseases through to natural health products, research instrumentation and an online platform to assist people with disabilities.
