Innovation Week Underway at NDSU

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota State University is marking it's 5th annual Innovation Week. A week designed to focus on the creative research and development projects taking place on campus.

This year, 24 finalists are competing in three different categories: corn, products, and services.

The winning teams in each category receive $5,000 to help them take their innovation to the next level.

"The innovative ideas of the NDSU students are truly phenomenal," said Chuck Hoge, interim executive director of the NDSU Research and Technology Park. "Innovation Challenge is an organized way for students to present their ideas, earn prize money and learn more about the process of turning ideas into commercial ventures."

The winners will be announced at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6, in the Memorial Union Great Plains Ballroom.  Keynote speaker André Taylor will also speak on his 35-year career as a business leader.

The Memorial Union is located on the NDSU Campus at 1401 Administrative Ave. in Fargo.
