Four new interdisciplinary research initiatives receive funding from the Water Institute

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

The University of Waterloo’s Water Institute has awarded a combined total of $67,275 to four new interdisciplinary water research initiatives during its most recent fall 2018 Seed Grants Program call for proposals. Maurice Dusseault, Prateep Kumar Nayak, Martin Ross and Larry Swatuk join the list of over 35 Water Institute members who have secured funding through the Seed Grants Program since its inception in 2011-12.

Facilitating collaboration and promoting innovation in interdisciplinary research is part of the Water Institute’s mission. One of the ways this is accomplished is through the Water Institute’s Seed Grant Program. The goal of this program is to catalyze interdisciplinary collaboration, facilitate interaction with international authorities, and to encourage the development of research proposals.

Water Institute members that were successful in securing funding from the Seed Grant program have catalyzed interdisciplinary research by hosting workshops that facilitate knowledge exchange between other researchers, government and private sectors, and civil society, and have developed detailed proposals advancing their innovative water research goals.
