Research and Creativity Convention

AUC Research and Creativity Convention is a collective event that brings together diverse research, design, entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity activities that have demonstrated growth and success over the years. Its aim is to enhance knowledge-sharing, interdisciplinary research collaboration, and projects of community or economic value. It is an event that highlights AUC’s strategic priorities, strengthens research capacity, invigorates campus creativity, and explores critical regional and global issues.
