The Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement (EURēCA) is an annual event that showcases research and creative activities by currently enrolled undergraduate students in collaboration with a University of Tennessee, Knoxville faculty mentor. Entries can be individual or group projects and are judged by a panel of UT faculty members and industry partners. The Office of Undergraduate Research coordinates this unique competition to encourage, support, and reward undergraduate participation in the campus research enterprise.
