University Days

August 29, 2022 - September 2, 2022

At Advanced Studies 2022 University Days, IBM key stakeholders presented their product challenges and research opportunities. This was an invaluable event for brainstorming and discussing research topics & interests amongst IBM key stakeholders and top-tier professors from universities across Canada for research project proposal creation.

Thank you for attending UDays 2022! We are always inspired by your continuous commitment to share, connect and collaborate with our community. After an exciting week of presentations and brainstorming, we hope you are walking away with even more ideas on how we can deliver research that makes a difference in technology, IBM and the world.

We want to hear how we did this year, and what we can do to deliver an even better experience next year. Please complete this brief and anonymous feedback survey to share your thoughts.
