CRIDC is the product of a collaboration between the Graduate Student Government Association (GSGA) and the Graduate Career Development Team from the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate and Postdoctoral Education. Several years ago, the event was created when the student-led poster competition, then known as the Georgia Tech Research and Innovation Competition (GTRIC) was combined with the Graduate Career Symposium.
CRIDC also features an Innovation Competition, in which ten graduate student finalists offered three-minute presentations to a panel of judges. All participants met with Tech’s VentureLab to explore grants and programs that can help them pursue startup businesses and technology licensing opportunities.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2023 CRIDC Innovation Competition:
1st place: Pradosh Dash
Runner-up: Simin Nasiri
Runner-up: Batin Karahasanoglu
In addition to the poster competition, this year’s CRIDC also featured an employee networking brunch as well as four career panels. For more information about CRIDC, please visit grad.gatech.edu/cridc.
