Each year, McGill Innovation Week showcases innovative research and activities, while connecting innovators and entrepreneurs from both inside the University and the community at large. From Nov. 13-19, 2016, student associations, internal stakeholders and community members will come together to discuss how to facilitate innovation and foster social and economic development. This year’s highlights include:
- Research conference: “Animating Pedestrian Zones in the Sonic Dimension” (Friday, Nov. 18). This day-long event, a co-presentation with the Goethe-Institut and Ville de Montréal, will explore the role that sound plays in the success – or failure – of public spaces. An international group of experts on urban planning, design and soundscapes will discuss noise, silence and how visual and audio elements come together to create ambiance. The event will be held in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music, Media and Technology.
Registration is required for many of the events. Details, and a full schedule of McGill Innovation Week 2016 events, are here.
