ORONO — The University of Maine will be showcasing its research to the public next week.
For the second year in a row, Maine Impact Week will be held virtually for the public to learn about projects members of the UMaine community have been working on and the contributions they’re making to society.
Ali Abedi, UMaine’s associate vice president for research, said there are various sessions throughout the week, including competitions, awards, student research presentations and keynote speakers.
He said this is an opportunity for people to connect with and learn from each other.
“The public can talk to the students, talk to the faculty and see what are the results of research here, how they can impact their lives and also communicate the problems that we might consider for future research,” Abedi said.
Anyone interested in attending can register on umaine.edu/impactweek.
Sessions will be held on Zoom daily from April 12 to 16.
