Synapse Launches Innovator Awards

As an addition to UPEI's 50th Anniversary celebrations, the Synapse  Distinguished Innovator and Inspiring Young Innovator awards were created to honour individuals associated with UPEI (student, staff, faculty or alumni) who have made a distinct contribution to their community through research, design and/or service that has addressed a challenge and demonstrated a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and/or the welfare of society. Individuals may also receive this award if, in the opinion of the selection committee, the individual has made a significant contribution to innovation as determined by the selection committee.

The 2019 call for nominations is now closed.  The Awards will be presented at the Innovation Celebration on the UPEI campus on Wednesday, September 25. For more information, please contact Marketing & Communications Coordinator, Kelly Mullaly at: or 902-894-2878.  Thank you.
