Presentations are welcome in either English or French. The event is an excellent opportunity for students to share their valuable research, to perfect their elevator pitch and presentation skills, and to network with their peers across disciplines - It takes all kinds of knowledge to change the world and thesis research from all disciplines is showcased!
