Last week, Duke hosted its annual Research & Innovation Week, attracting academic and scientific communities from across campus to explore and share the latest advancements in their respective fields. The week was brought to life through an ambitious program of six topical panel discussions, 14 sessions called Researcher Fundamentals, a research town hall on open scholarship, and a signature lecture that left attendees inspired and energized.
The panel discussions covered a diverse range of topics, from the future of computing to the complex global challenges of food security and sustainability, providing a platform for more than 24 leading researchers at Duke to delve into the intricacies of their discoveries and findings.
The Researcher Fundamentals sessions, which were new to Research & Innovation Week this year, informed current and aspiring researchers about the many services available to them while offering a comprehensive overview of the vast research landscape at Duke. Through these sessions, more than 36 research experts presented and connected with faculty, students and staff attendees.
The signature Daubechies Lecture 2023, delivered by renowned computer scientist Klara Nahrstedt of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, offered thought-provoking insights into how physical spaces in academic scientific environments are rapidly being transformed by digital innovations, providing a glimpse at how research and innovation will continue to evolve in higher education.
Duke Research & Innovation Week 2023 was a celebration of innovative thinking and cutting-edge research that provided faculty, staff and students with opportunities to learn from their colleagues and push the boundaries of what is possible.
