Highlights from 2020

Over 115 people attended the third annual BadgerConnect Research Services Fair that took place November 9-13, 2020. Virtual events throughout the week included a Core Panel Discussion about a research pipeline on campus, a Research Talk that highlighted how research services contributed to their projects, two core Webinars, and a culminating Networking Reception with the cores, vendors, and attendees. Many Core Flashtalks and Tutorials were posted online pre, during and post-meeting. Here are some fun facts from the 2020 BadgerConnect event:

  • This was our first virtual event! The flashtalks, tutorials, and most live events remain posted on the BadgerConnect 2020 Webpage for viewing.
  • 27 different research services and 8 different vendors participated in the event.
  • 86% of survey respondents said they would attend the event again in the future, and many said they would use a service as a result of information they learned at BadgerConnect
  • An average of 20 people attended each live event.
