The spotlight will be on Graduate and Undergraduate Applied Research Students and Faculty of the University of the Commonwealth Caribbean (UCC) when they present at the annual Research Conference on Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Technology 2022, September 28-29.

The hybrid conference, being held under the theme ‘Harnessing the Power of Technology through Innovation for Global Resilience‘, will include presentations from Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) and Commonwealth Executive Master of Business Administration (CEMBA) Graduate and Undergraduate Applied Research Students and across a range of disciplines including business administration, behavioural sciences and information technology.


Dr Haldane Davies, president of the UCC, noted that, “Each year, we are struck by the range of research shared by our UCC teams at the annual research conference. The students and faculty have well represented their fields of interest, allowing researchers in other disciplines, policymakers and the public to become aware of the innovative, cutting-edge research being generated at the UCC.”

“In addition, every year, our students and faculty are encouraged to present their research findings at this conference. It is an excellent opportunity to hone their presentation skills for such future commitments, such as master’s or dissertation defences and classroom teaching. It also affords them an opportunity to learn invaluable information from people working with similar techniques, populations or statistics. We look forward to seeing expanded collaborative research on a wide range of topics including areas that are germane to the sustainability of the nation,” mused Davies.

A major complement to the presentations at the UCC Research Conference will be a poster presentation – digital display of ten student research posters, from which the top three will be chosen by a distinguished panel of judges.

There will also be workshops on qualitative and auantitative analytical tool presentations on “The role of incubators and accelerators in Innovation”.

The conference closes on September 29, 2022, with a keynote address by Wayne Beecher, CEO of Altcatalyst, on ‘Harnessing the Power of Technology Through Innovation For Global Resilience‘.

The hybrid conference will be on Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube, and in the Lecture Theatre at the Worthington Avenue campus.  Persons can register to attend by clicking here.
