Festival of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities


March 9 – 13, 2020

FURCA is our annual, campus-wide celebration of undergraduate research, showcasing the research and creative achievements of undergraduate students across all disciplines. 

Technically speaking, a "furca" is a two-pronged fork. Kinda like a fondue fork. We didn't plan it that way, but as is often the case in research...it just works.

Why? Because FURCA (the celebration) brings together all of our favourite things: undergraduate students and research. Research and creative activities. Teaching and research. You get the idea.


Thank you! 

The URI would like to thank all presenters, volunteers, sponsors and supporters for making FURCA 2019 a success!  We hope you had a great week celebrating undergraduate research with us, and we can't wait to see you again next year! 

Watch this space for announcements about FURCA 2020.  We anticipate dates will be announced by late-summer 2019, and abstract submissions will open in fall 2019.
