  • Six graduate research fellowships awarded (2 in CBS, 3 in CSE, 1 in BTI)

  • Two demonstration projects being launched

  • A meet and greet planned for Wednesday February 5

  • Developing connections with the mining industry

  • New request for applications for graduate fellowships planned (10 × 2-year)

  • Program being developed for undergraduate researchers
