    DEADLINE: Award/Grant - NSERC Discovery Grants

    All day


    This program supports ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances. These grants provide long term operating funds, but are not meant to support the full costs of a research program. Applicants are encouraged to increase the inclusion and advancement of women and other under-represented groups in the natural sciences and engineering, as one means to enhance excellence in research and training. Discovery Grants are awarded to individual researchers, normally for five years.

    DEADLINE: Award/Grant - Discovery Grant Supplements (DND/NSERC)

    All day

    The DND Supplement provides additional resources to researchers whose Discovery Grant applications were successful in the Discovery Grants competition and whose research addresses the DND target areas. Each award is valued at up to $120,000 over three years (up to $40,000 annually). These funds may be used to expand the recipient’s research group (e.g., students, postdoctoral fellows, technicians), to purchase or access specialized equipment, or for other initiatives or resources that would accelerate the recipient’s research program in the targeted areas.

    5th National Water and Wastewater Conference

    All day

    The fifth National Water and Wastewater Conference will take place from November 3-6, 2019 in Banff, Alberta.

    Before the inception of this Conference CWWA hosted several stand alone events focusing on various aspects of water management – including drinking water, wastewater and efficiency. By merging these events into one National Conference CWWA has created a unique event that merges all aspects of water management, providing amazing networking, opportunities for information exchange and innovation.

    Amsterdam International Water Week Conference

    All day

    The AIWW supports a sustainable water environment by providing a platform to connect those who face challenges with those who can contribute to solutions, both in the public and private domain. It supports stakeholders in building practical solutions for progress on water issues. The main theme of the AIWW Conference 2019 is ‘Implementation of Integrated Solutions by cities, industries, utilities and financiers: from cases to bankable projects.’ At the AIWW Conference leading innovators from municipal operators, industrial system developers, utilities and production chain designers will discuss the ambitious task to improve water system management. Together with municipal and industrial leaders and investors they will rethink the institutional approach to water system management with special attention for the two overall AIWW Conference-themes: a circular water economy and climate change adaptation.
