“Research isn’t dry or boring, it’s vibrant, it’s alive, it’s essential for society and it’s beautiful”.
That from Daniel Hallen with the Office of the Vice-President, Research after the best pictures from students, faculty and staff at the University of Saskatchewan were revealed for the third annual Images of Research competition.
100 entries were submitted from the field, including still images and brief descriptions of why their research, scholarly or artistic work matters.
Also, as part of the U of S Canada 150 Project, the university also accepted 1-minute video submissions detailing how their research makes a difference for Canada.
Hallen says more than 87-hundred people visited their site from more than 30 countries during two weeks of online voting. .
Research came from the Inuit to Africa, and Hallen says, “the fact that we are getting so much attention from so many different places really does reflect the global nature of that research.”
