On October 22, the University of Waterloo’s Office of Research and the Office of Advancement organized a showcase event to celebrate the progress of the University of Waterloo and Technion partnership, which has been supported through the Schwartz-Reisman Foundation beginning in 2014. The event involved three presentations of joint UW-Technion research projects in the fields of Nanotechnology, Quantum Computing and Water Science. Philippe Van Cappellen and Alex Furman presented the collaborative work between their research groups on “Spectral Induced Polarization (SIP): An Emerging Technique in Hydrogeology and Environmental Biogeosciences”. Also attending the event as observers were Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Adrian Mellage (now at University of Tuebingen) who have been closely involved in the project. The event, including a Q/A session with Gerry Schwartz and Lori Shapiro from the foundation, was moderated by Bob Lemieux, Dean of Science.
