Congratulations to the participants and contributors of the CREATE WATER program

Posted by CRI Programs   |   August 29, 2017

In 2011, CRI was awarded more than $1.5M for its Watershed and Aquatics Training in Environmental Research (WATER) professional development program from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council’s (NSERC) Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE).

CRI scientists from six different universities collaborated as student supervisors in this multi-year initiative aimed at building the skills of the next generation of highly-qualified and experienced aquatic scientists.

Over the six-year program, more than $1M was provided to 74 undergraduate, graduate students and post-doctoral scholars located at universities across the country. These students were selected for their research projects that focused on developing solutions to real world problems using environmental technologies in aquatic ecology, hydrology, ecotoxicology, and environmental chemistry. 

In addition to the academic research support from more than a dozen CRI Science Directors and Associates, students were provided with directed training in professional science skills through technical training courses and exchanges within academia, industry, and government research groups. More than 40 instructors provided more than 50 unique online and field courses focused on technical, analytical, management, and communication skills to compliment each participants’ academic courses and research projects.

A special acknowledgment goes to Dr. Michelle Gray, a CRI Science Director based at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), who joined CRI’s founding members and CREATE WATER program principal investigators, Dr. Allen Curry (UNB) and Kelly Munkittrick (formerly UNB), in the development, delivery and administration of the program.

The CRI CREATE WATER program provided opportunities to a broad community of water professionals across Canada and internationally. More than 3,000 participants from government agencies, academia, First Nations communities and organizations, and private and non-profit sectors benefited from the many courses developed and offered through the program.

The CRI WATER program is one of the many examples of CRI’s contribution to advancing aquatic sciences, forging industrial and business partnerships, and government collaborations to support the development of new science and practices in river management and particularly the training of a new generation of water resource specialists.

We look forward to profiling more of these initiatives in the future.

Sincerely,

Michael van den Heuvel
Institute Director
