The Harris Centre - RBC Water Research and Outreach Fund

Everyone drinks water. YOU research it.

The Harris Centre invites you to apply to the Harris Centre RBC Water Research and Outreach Fund. The fund is open to all Memorial faculty, staff and students interested in drinking water issues in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The objectives of the Harris Centre RBC Water Research and Outreach Fund are to:

  1. contribute to research evidence that will inform public policy or assist community groups in their local decision-making;
  2. increase faculty research in rural drinking water issues especially research that addresses specific community needs in research projects;
  3. make a difference in the lives of Newfoundland and Labrador people.

 

The fund provides up to $15,000 per project for creative, relevant, applied research on rural and remote drinking water issues in Newfoundland and Labrador. Funding is for a maximum of a one year period. Researchers from all disciplines are welcome to apply and we strongly encourage multidisciplinary and collaborative projects between faculty, staff and students and external stakeholders.

Research projects can be in the broad categories of health, society, economy, and environment, but must clearly demonstrate how the project can assist policy and decision-makers in addressing real-world drinking water issues in this province.

2015-2016 Cycle Deadline:  Friday, April 10, 2015, 5pm NDT
Fund now closed to applications.
