EURēCA and IRB (human subjects research)
Students who conduct research involving people or people data must submit their projects for IRB approval and have received IRB approval prior to exhibiting at EURēCA.
Classroom projects may be displayed at EURēCA and will be subject to acceptance by your college representative. If the classroom project involved the collection of information from or about people, the faculty member or the student(s) will need to apply to convert their classroom activity to research through application to the IRB for ‘materials and data collected for non-research purposes’ prior to display at EURēCA. This process averages 2-3 weeks (but can vary depending on your active engagement/collaboration and responses back to the IRB) and requires the Principal Investigator (PI) and collaborators to complete CITI training. (An undergraduate student may serve as a PI.) If there is a question as to whether your classroom project would need the additional approval, please contact the IRB at http://irb.utk.edu/.
Posters and Printing
- Posters will be attached and displayed on the display boards pictured at the bottom of the page. Regardless of vertical or horizontal orientation maximum poster size is 36″ X 42″.
- Printing is the responsibility of the student. (UCopy in Greve Hall will print a full color 36″x42″ poster in on flat/matte paper for approximately $26.25.)
- Illustrations (diagrams, photographs, figures, etc.) should be sized and lettered to be legible from a distance of three feet. Illustrations should be simple, colorful, well labeled, and neat.
- Posters CAN NOT be mounted on foam board or poster board.
- Posters should not be laminated.
- You may not post your printed research paper in lieu of a poster.
- Optional poster templates are available from the Undergraduate Research site. Select 2 or 3 column formats in the slide master view.
- Velcro will be supplied for attaching posters to displays.
Some disciplines allow for non-poster exhibits to be entered into EURēCA. If your submission will be for a non-poster exhibit, please include your requested space dimensions in your application and include any additional requests regarding lighting, electricity, etc…
