Water and Innovation- Peter Wall Exploratory Workshop

The Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada, recently hosted an international Exploratory Workshop on water and innovation, led by Principal Investigator, Dr. Karen Bakker from UBC’s Department of Geography.

Through these workshops, the Institute brings researchers from UBC and around the world together to advance excellence in knowledge development in an interdisciplinary environment. The workshops serve as a catalyst for collaborative research between international scholars and UBC scholars. They will provide scholars, community leaders, artists, policy makers and others the opportunity to explore a theme, create the foundation for innovative research, prompt important advances in science and society, and/or have a significant impact on the discovery of solutions to important problems.
