About RaceWhat is RACE?
RACE (Research Advocacy for Community Empowerment) is a first-ever nationwide research competition and exhibition organized to be the largest simultaneously organized research event done in multiple locations by a country, which made an official attempt with the Guinness World Records. It is primarily designed to create opportunities for students, faculty, staff, professionals, and researchers-alike from different institutions to interrelate/interact with their counterparts in both a friendly yet competitive atmosphere.
