About Research Week

Research Week is a university-wide celebration of research, creativity, and innovation across all disciplines at the University of North Florida. At UNF, Research Week consists of showcases, workshops, award ceremonies, symposia, and other events designed to showcase the prestigious research being conducted by UNF students, faculty, and staff. All members of the University of North Florida and members of the northeast Florida community are invited to join us as we celebrate the many contributions of the university community to advancements in knowledge, teaching, and creativity.


As part of UNF's efforts to minimize exposure of our campus community to the COVID-19 virus, and to comply with the CDC's recommendation to avoid holding events with 50 or more people, the 2020 Research Week events have either been moved to an online format or they have been cancelled or postponed to a later date. Details are found below.
