Advancing Water Technologies Program Information Session

Tuesday June 14, 2016 8:45am to 10:00am
Alexander Hall, Room 168


The Advancing Water Technologies (AWT) Program is a brand new catalyst for business-led collaborations in the water sector. It was created by the Southern Ontario Water Consortium to help Ontario small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) leverage world-class research facilities and academic expertise to develop and demonstrate water technologies for successful introduction to the market. AWT provides financial contributions to industry-led research and development projects in the water sector that will result in the successful commercialization of globally-competitive and market-ready products and services. AWT will support existing industry-academic partnerships and actively encourage and develop new ones.

The Office of Research Services is pleased to invite interested researchers to attend an information session on the Advancing Water Technologies (AWT) Program, administered by the Southern Ontario Water Consortium (SOWC). This one-hour session will include an overview of the AWT funding program, including project eligibility and requirements, and information on the application process. The session will also include time for questions from the audience.
