The research findings of the first batch of students were launched at the research symposium. 176 presenters presented their research findings in five technical sessions which were believed to be exploited by the participants to create a platform to debate and discuss valuable scientific ideas to be developed in order to add value to the natural resource base. In addition, several lab-scale innovations were exhibited at the symposium including the Office Assistant Robot, 3D Scanners, Home Security Systems, Automated Machines and many more.
2nd Research Symposium
Towards a Knowledge Economy.
The symposium provided a forum for Uva Wellassa University undergraduates, academics, scientists, industrialists and entrepreneurs both local and overseas to discuss, debate and exhibit their research outputs, innovative findings, novel products in the fields of Animal Science, Export Agriculture, Computer Science, Management, Science & Technology and other related fields during 15-16 December 2011.

A new feature, a poster session was added to benefit those who were not successful in presenting their papers orally. In total, 47 posters were on display.
4th Research Symposium
Value Addition Towards Economic Growth and Prosperity.
This research symposium gave an immense opportunity to researchers to debate and exchange interactive views on their novel research findings. It provided the scholars an ideal platform to exhibit their new innovative knowledge in research activities by selecting the apt theme “Value Addition towards Economic Growth and Prosperity’. Their scholarly knowledge was expected to be contributed to elevate the social wellbeing and socio economic development of the country.
5th Research Symposium
Value Addition for Sustainable Development.
This research symposium provided an appropriate and timely platform to bring together the young and promising researchers to present their work, interact with and learn from each other on innovative theoretical and evidence-based research. In this symposium, a number of parallel technical sessions had been organized covering all eleven (11) degree programs and a poster session. More than 200 presenters presented their research findings in these sessions which were believed to be exploited by the participants to create a platform to exchange and discuss valuable scientific ideas to be developed later into more meaningful interactions.
