This partnership seeks to build a new collaboration between CBB researchers at the University of Waterloo and the Sorbonne Universités in the transdisciplinary area of Health Engineering. Health engineering is a research theme that cuts across UW strengths in engineering, applied health, computer science and aging. A MOU was signed between UW and the Sorbonne Universités in November 2015.
The first CBB/Sorbonne workshop is scheduled May 9-11, 2016 here in Waterloo with the goal to look for key areas of synergy. The second workshop will leverage those synergies towards building a strong ongoing partnership with the end goals of:
An IRPG was created between Waterloo's CBB and the Sorbonne Universités in April 2016 to further develop international collaboration for Innovative Health Engineering.

Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is co-ordinated within the Office of Indigenous Relations.
