Discoveries to Impact 2021
Celebrating Research, Engagement, Innovation & Startups!
March 29, 2021 - April 02, 2021  ·  Texas Tech University

Texas Tech continues to challenge its faculty, staff, and students to be responsive to community and societal needs and to provide innovative solutions to the complex problems facing our region, state, nation, and world.  We want our partners to join us to showcase great ideas, develop the workforce, and highlight West Texas as the place for business.You are invited to be a part of the 3rd Annual Discoveries to Impact Week (DTI): A Celebration of Research, Engagement, Innovation, and Startups.  DTI Week is made possible through an exciting new partnership between the Center for Transformative Undergraduate Experiences (TrUE), the Innovation Hub at Research Park, the Center for Integration of STEM Education Research (CISER), and University Outreach and Engagement.

In 2019, with the support of our generous community and TTU partners, DTI showcased 375 research presentations from 12 institutions and four countries, two dynamic keynote speakers, three thought-provoking panels, and awarded $17,500 in startup funding. You can view a highlight video from 2019 on the DTI web page at ttu.edu/dti.  The 2020 Discoveries to Impact Week will include the National Academy of Inventors Award Banquet, the 12th Annual TTU Undergraduate Research Conference, the 4th Annual “Sparking the Future of Innovation” (Spark) Conference, CISER’s Undergraduate Research Scholars Banquet, a Visual and Performing Arts exhibition at the First Friday Art Trail, and the 3rd Annual Regional Engaged Scholarship Symposium.
