The Office of Innovation sponsors annual and ad hoc events to celebrate innovation at UNE. Whether we are celebrating the visionary efforts of our students or inspiring them with the work of others, we provide on-campus activities that capture a spirit of ingenuity and initiative and share it with the entire University community.
