October 21, 2015

The University of Saskatchewan and the Beijing Institute of Technology have awarded the inaugural International Flagship Partnership Research Grant (IFPRG) to support an international collaboration that aims to remove contaminants from the environment. “This is a perfect example of how this partnership can strengthen connections between our institutions and advance our respective areas of expertise,” said Diane Martz, Director of International Research and Partnerships at uSask. “It is a recognition that the issues we examine are not local, but now more than ever before our research has global application.” uSask and BIT have each contributed $50 K to fund the annual competition for the next three years. uSask
