Research Live! Event Details

Join us for a fun, fast-paced, and fascinating celebration of graduate research at Illinois!

The University of Illinois is home to thousands of graduate students engaged in exciting, ground-breaking research, innovative creative work, and more. Research Live!, now in its second year, challenges them to highlight their work and hone their presentation skills by giving a compelling 3-minute, 2-slide talk.

And we’re challenging you to be that audience! Come to the finals to learn a lot, vote for your favorite, and help us applaud the amazing things graduate students do here at Illinois.
