Research Lightning Talks

Collaborate on Innovation

  • Are you looking for opportunities for collaboration?
  • Do you want to hear about new research directions at Cal Poly?

The Office of Research and Economic Development is hosting a group of fast-based, brief 4-minute presentations from faculty all over campus on their various research interests and the disciplines with whom they wish to collaborate. The goal of this event is to promote research collaboration among faculty and staff. The presenting faculty represent a cross-section of colleges and disciplines and are seeking collaborators in areas such as computer science, theater, psychology, agriculture, biological and physical sciences, engineering, business, and social science and policy, among others. Come listen to the talks, and then mingle and network with the presenters afterwards. See the list of presentations below.

Beverages and hors d'ouevres will be provided. For more information, contact Allie Walter at ext. 6-5153.
