CBB and Sorbonne Universités Partnership for Innovative Health Engineering

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:
- Applying for joint grant applications to Canadian and European funding agencies in the field of health engineering for Horizon 2020, European Space Agency, European Research Council, and national funding programs in Canada and France.
- Research oriented exchanges of graduate students or faculty visits to deepen knowledge on an individual level.
An IRPG was created between Waterloo's CBB and the Sorbonne Universités in April 2016 to further develop international collaboration for Innovative Health Engineering.
