Celebrate Research Week March 4 – 11 2011
Research, the systematic search for new knowledge, happens every day at UBC. Every day, through scholarly publication, new ideas developed here form a platform for further exploration at research institutions around the world. At UBC,
we take one week every year to reflect on, to illuminate and to educate our community about the richness of discovery
in science and the humanities. It’s a week in March to Celebrate Research, a mirror of our September Celebrate Learning Week, and an invaluable window on the best of what remarkable minds are doing in this remarkable place.
