Synapse Launches Innovators of the Year Awards

As an addition to UPEI's 50th Anniversary celebrations, the Synapse Innovators of the Year 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.

Copies of the Award Guidelines are available at this link and the online Nomination form is available at this link.

Nominations are being accepted until August 15.  The Awards will be presented at the Innovation Celebration on the UPEI campus on Wednesday, September 25
