Events and Workshops

Mitacs Sessions

The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research continues to bring high quality full-day and two-day Mitacs professional development training to UAlberta graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

These workshops are free for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. However, the preauthorization of a valid credit card is required as part of the registration process. A $50 penalty will be applied to all late cancellations (cancellations that are not made 5 days or more before the workshop date), no shows, or incomplete attendance. These penalties are only charged after the completion of a workshop and no charges are ever made to those who participate in full. For answers to frequently asked question regarding registration and eligibility, please visit their FAQ page. 

These workshops may be used towards the Professional Development (PD) Requirement. All professional development sessions or activities must be approved by your department.

Discovering the Entrepreneur Within 

Discovering the Entrepreneur Within has participants analyze successful entrepreneurial ventures and identify what it took for those entrepreneurs to reach their goals. Using an interactive, team-based approach, this full-day workshop builds awareness of the current Canadian entrepreneurial landscape and resources available to those looking to start their own business. Using the tools and techniques used in the first part of the workshop, teams create a product or service concept that they will present to the group. May the best idea win!

Time: 9 a.m. –  5 p.m. (Registration starts at 8:45 a.m.)
