Knowledge Integration and Mobilization for Resilient, Sustainable Municipal Systems

For More Information

CWN – Program Guidelines


The objective is to integrate, share and apply existing knowledge that advances municipal needs in the areas of climate resiliency and financial sustainability of municipal water systems.  CWN is soliciting proposals for projects that will synthesize, mobilize and apply knowledge that enables municipalities or service providers to establish more sustainable and resilient cities.   Knowledge integration refers to synthesis, analysis and review of existing knowledge. Knowledge mobilization is the process of interpreting, translating and disseminating knowledge into a language and format that facilitates its uptake and application by end-users i.e. municipalities). Ideally, knowledge mobilization is done in partnership with research users.


Faculty members eligible to receive tri-council (NSERC, CIHR, SSHRC) funding are eligible to apply.
