The UBC Centennial Emerging Research Workshop on Water will be held on March 8-11, 2016.

The workshop will bring together leading water experts from UBC, the global academe, NGOs, and the public to share knowledge and advance emerging ideas. It aims to connect the diverse community of water researchers at UBC across multiple disciplines. In doing so, the workshop and the post-workshop strategy session will aim to generate a practical roadmap for building a cohesive and comprehensive water research cluster.
