Four Waterloo researchers are among a group of Canada Research Chairs (CRCs) announced by the Government of Canada. Dr. Nandita Basu, jointly appointed to the Faculties of Engineering and Science, was named the Canada Research Chair in Global Water Sustainability and Ecohydrology.
Yesterday, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, highlighted this commitment by announcing an investment of more than $139 million to support 176 new and renewed Canada Research Chairs across 46 institutions in Canada.
