Vancouver, BC — Mitacs is pleased to announce four winners of this year’s Globalink photo contest. The annual contest received over 200 entries and highlighted the experiences of Globalink research interns at universities across the country.
Four photographs were selected as the top entrants in three categories:
My Research (two winners): Interns shared their Globalink research projects
“I was so happy to have the opportunity to contribute to a geophysical survey deep in an underground mining gallery in Quebec. Canada was a great place to learn and to develop a more global perspective in the field of sustainable technologies.” — Kumar Sanu Rao
“It was a great experience to learn more about 3-D printing technology through this research internship. I see how I could connect what I learned at Western University with my schooling in China and would like to continue this work in my future studies.” — Hanyu Chen
My Research Collaboration: Interns captured the spirit of collaboration and cross-cultural research at their universities
“My research in Saskatchewan this summer was truly an on-the-ground experience, where I made many friends and learned so much about my field of study and how to collaborate within a research group.” — Sabrine Ben Rhouma
My Canada: Interns captured their favourite moments from discovering Canada outside the lab
“My favourite part of my experience was how I was able to connect to researchers and people from all over, and how we helped each other in our work. Mitacs Globalink helped me to expand my personal and professional networks and opened my eyes to the possibility of becoming an entrepreneur through my research.” — Carlos Vasquez Ochoa
This summer, over 500 Globalink research interns spent 12-weeks in Canada helping to solve complex problems in a wide range of sectors, from healthcare and robotics to aviation, communication, and the environment. Students hailed from Australia, Brazil, China, France, India, Germany, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia.
