On Oct 2013 Research Day was held in CHBE, Chemical and Biological Engineering Department, UBC. Research Day was a student-initiated event with support from the CHBE department. The program started at 8:30am with two short welcome speeches by Dr. Helen Burt, Associate Vice President Research, and Dr. Peter Englezos, the Department Head.With a deep focus on topics related to "energy, water and sustainability" the attendees were exposed to the presentations, posters, and booths from different industries. The critical issues related to these topics were presented and discussed in detail. Mainly students from the faculty of applied science, professionals, and researchers attended the event. In addition, Research Day created an excellent opportunity for collaborations between industry and academia. A booth was assigned to CSBE on the main floor of the CHBE building. The CSBE banner was installed and the brochures/application forms were distributed among the students, professors, researchers, and professionals from industries. Many individuals were intrigued to know more about the CSBE community and the benefits of being a CSBE member. CSBE applications or brochures were offered to people who were interested to know more about CSBE and the membership.
