Impact and beyond

Monday, September 14, 2020 4:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

The profound impact of early discovery, experimentation, and disruption through research and invention

Researchers today build on the knowledge and discoveries made by those who have come before them. How can today’s researchers light the early pathways and curiosities for the research breakthroughs of the future? How can we demonstrate the impact and potential of the yet-to-be known? And, what if any, role does academia, industry, the Faculty of Mathematics, and Canada play in increasing the discovery journey to these new frontiers?

Recognizing September 14th as Profound Impact Day will celebrate the global impact of the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo, its role as an international centre of research and development, and the Waterloo Digital Math community. Join us to hear about:

  • The impact research from the Faculty of Mathematics can have
  • How your curiosity and discoveries deepen our impact
  • How connecting with each other and our alumni can open up new impactful opportunities

On Profound Impact Day, join Camelia Nunez, Faculty of Mathematics’ Director of Innovation and Research Partnerships, for a fireside conversation withProfessor Michele Mosca (BMath '95), co-founder of Waterloo's cryptography centre and the Institute for Quantum Computing, and a leader in the field of quantum information.
