What is OWIC Innovation Days?
OWIC Innovation Days is an annual event that starts with a high-impact networking opportunity that brings together forest industry professionals to interact with our 70+ Renewable Materials students and continues the following day with a workshop on innovation in the forest sector. Our approach to networking and exploration of innovation produces exceptional results for companies as well as students.
Becoming acquainted with industry professionals has been vital to my success thus far. Innovation days was the perfect opportunity to revitalize relations with the old, and to connect with the new. – Camille Moyers, RM Undergraduate
