Final Student Presentations:
The office for Research and Innovation is proud to invite you to attend the Colligan User Interface Design Challenge Duck Tank Event! This is a free, public, “Shark Tank”-style event in which our final four student teams will pitch their ideas to our distinguished panel of judges as they compete for the top prize from a purse totaling $15,000.
Throughout the course of this four-month challenge, student teams from across campus came together to create a meaningful and market relevant user experience concept. This interdisciplinary competition was the result of a vision brought to the office for Research and Innovation by UO alumnus Ed Colligan (’83). As the former CEO of Palm, Inc. and Handspring, Ed knows the importance of the growing mobile market and just how critical it is to get students engaged in all aspects of user experience design.
This event will also serve as a celebration of the great innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship that exists at UO. Please join us - refreshments will be provided!
