Princeton Research Day celebrates the research and creative endeavors of the campus-wide community. The event serves as an opportunity for researchers and creators to reach across disciplines by communicating in non-specialist language about their research or creative work.

Now in its seventh consecutive year, the event highlights work from across all areas of study at Princeton, including the natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, the arts and humanities.

Presenters include undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and other early-career researchers.

In 2022, PRD will be held online and in person. Participants will create three-minute video presentations describing their research projects, performances, artistic works or other creative expressions. All videos will be posted online where they will be accessible to the public.

In addition, presenters may elect to discuss their work in-person at a poster/networking session on May 5, 2022.

The top videos will be selected to present on May 5 at PRD Mainstage. Videos are selected by PRD judges and the viewing public.

All are welcome, circumstances permitting, to visit the poster/networking session and attend the PRD Mainstage event. The event will also be viewable online.

Princeton Research Day is a collaborative initiative between the offices of the Dean of the College, the Dean of the Graduate School, the Dean for Research and the Vice President for Campus Life, with support from the Dean of the Faculty and Office of the Provost.
