Princeton University

Princeton Research Day 2021 will culminate in #PRD21 Mainstage on May 6 at 4 pm with a showcase of the top videos as determined by our panel of judges, coupled with awards for outstanding contributions. 

#PRD21 Mainstage is free and open to the public.


Princeton Research Day is an exciting opportunity for Princeton researchers and scholars — from postdocs and non-tenured scholars to graduate students and undergraduates — to showcase their research and creative work for a broad audience. 

This year, PRD will be held entirely online. Presenters will create a 3-minute video and submit it March 31 - April 28. All videos will be displayed online and the top videos will appear at PRD Mainstage, an online celebration May 6 from 4 pm to 5:30 pm.
