Student Research and Innovation Day was the annual showcase of Fanshawe College student research projects. Students who had completed individual, group, class or capstone projects were invited to submit them for consideration. A selection committee reviewed all entries and chose semi-finalists who were invited to display their projects at the event. Judges assessed each project based on specific criteria. Winners were chosen and cash prizes were awarded. SRID was open to Fanshawe College students and recent graduates from all programs.

Starting in 2015, the Centre for Research and Innovation will hold an annual Research and Innovation Day that incorporates both student AND faculty exhibitions into one college-wide event. The first Research and Innovation Day under this new format, will be held on March 18, 2015. Details are available on the Research and Innovation Day page.
