VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity


Conferences and COVID

Greetings all those keen to get out there and conquer. For now, we are operating in the virtual conquering mode. There are lots of events that are happening virtually - if there are registration costs associated with the event, you can apply for funding! Good news! 

Get out there

So, this section is called conferences, but in reality there are many ways we 'mobilize knowledge'. Other events may include: workshops, trade-shows, colloquia, and round-tables. There are SO many opportunities for you to go out beyond VIU's walls to learn and share knowledge. Please see the list of opportunities below for some options.
