Undergraduate Research Conference 2016

The U21 2016 Undergraduate Research Conference ‘A Global Perspective on Ageing Societies’ took place at Tecnológico de Monterrey from 11 – 16 July 2016. The conference was designed using flexible, interactive and technology-based learning (FIT model). Students were trained in presenting materials in a virtual environment and the presentations were recorded and transmitted via LiveStream to over 270 students across 25 countries.


Fifty-two students and seven faculty members attended from 20 member institutions. In addition to academic pursuits, delegates also had an opportunity to cultural and recreational activities – delegates visited Fundidora Park and took salsa classes!
