    The Graduate Student Research Symposium, held each March, includes poster presentations from more than 200 graduate students from NC State University. Posters are judged by faculty, and students receive recognition for top posters. The goals are to showcase the outstanding quality and diversity of graduate-level research at NC State, in addition to providing students with the opportunity to practice and enhance their communication skills with those outside of their discipline.

    The event is sponsored by the Graduate School and the Graduate Student Association and is open to the public. Students are nominated by Directors of Graduate Programs, so those interested in the symposium should let their Directors of Graduate Programs know.

    RLA Lunch & Learn: Intellectual Property

    Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm
    Location: Talley Student Union, Room 4280, 2610 Cates Ave, Raleigh, NC 27606, USA


    The Research Leadership Academy invites you to a Lunch and Learn seminar. Wade Fulghum, Interim Executive Director, and Kultaran Chohan, Director of Licensing, will facilitate a discussion focusing on OTCNV’s process to evaluate, protect, and commercialize inventions developed by NC State faculty and students and the different programs (e.g. NSF I-CORPS, Chancellor’s Innovation Fund, Sweat Equity Challenge, etc.) it has in place to facilitate and support the formation of NC State startup companies.

    In 1980, the US Congress passed the Bayh-Dole Act to incentivize universities to actively develop intellectual property and to ensure that university research/discoveries are brought to the market place where they can benefit society.  Intellectual Property (IP) plays a critical role in bring early stage university research/discoveries to the market place by ensuring companies are incentivized to invest in the further development of these discoveries. University IP is generally commercialized through licensing of IP to either existing companies or through the formation of new startup companies. Faculty and students should understand what constitutes IP, how publications can impact IP protection, and what steps can be taken to protect IP while retaining the ability to publish. NC State’s OTCNV plays an important role in ensuring NC State’s compliance with the requirements of the Bayh-Dole Act and in facilitating the commercialization of early stage discoveries through licensing of IP.

    Coffee & Viz - Tropical Forest Conservation: The View from 700 Kilometers

    Time: 9:30am - 10:30am
    Location: James B. Hunt Library, Teaching and Visualization Lab, Room 4505, 1070 Partners Way


    Tropical deforestation is the second largest contributor of greenhouse emissions and has important impacts on global climate, biodiversity, and human well-being. Strategies for preserving tropical forests range from local-scale interventions, such as the establishment of protected areas, to national- and larger-scale economic (dis)incentives. New methods using time series of remotely sensed images allow us to map land-use change and evaluate the effectiveness of these various strategies. In this talk, Dr. Joshua Gray will show how this approach was applied to assess the impact of logging concessions in Indonesia.

    Dr. Joshua Gray is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources and a Faculty Fellow at the Center for Geospatial Analytics at NC State.

    Free and open to the public.
