Connection

Waterloo is changing the world through its connections. Delivering global impact requires a vast network of connections, with industry, academics, governments and communities. Connections allow Waterloo researchers to share knowledge with nanotechnology researchers in China, and architecture students in Rome, to help Caribbean nations prepare for climate change impacts, and to improve the lives of millions of people by studying how we age.
