  • All participants will receive a credit on their Co-Curricular Record as well as a certificate of recognition from CRI



Join us live from 1-3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 18, 2022

We will have presentations highlighting the research Fanshawe students are working on in the CARIB food innovation labs, stories of how CRI is working to support industry and community partners and a showcase of the top research projects of the year.


Submit your research project


Everyone at Fanshawe (student, faculty, staff, anyone) can submit their project for the on-demand virtual showcase, as long as it hasn't been featured previously in RID. Projects from previous years or multi-year projects are eligible. CRI reserves the right to limit the total number of projects that are displayed online.


Submission Deadline: February 25th, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.


Submission must include:

1) Research Poster

2) Maximum 5-minute video presentation describing your project to the internet audience (research project "elevator pitch")

  •  Any video file format is fine. Your video must be submitted "as is" and "ready to go/final." There will be no editing or corrections provided
  • The video can feature just you, or if it's a team project you can have one spokesperson, or submit one total maximum 5-minute edited video combining speaking from all team members. Be as creative as you wish, but remember to maintain appropriate social distancing rules.
  • Record the video with good lighting and audio quality (you may be asked to re-record if necessary)
  • Please submit a written transcript of your speaking notes/audio words (in a Microsoft Word file or text document. Identify the speaker's name). To save time, write your script ahead of time and read it (much faster than transcribing afterwards)
  • Record your video in landscape orientation (not portrait)
  • Watch our handy instructional video on how to create an effective elevator pitch video, and view our tip sheet of instructions
