UAlberta to move mountains with new research centre

April 22, 2019

Canada’s newest member of the Networks of Centres of Excellence, the Canadian Mountain Network, will be hosted at the University of Alberta. The Government of Canada has announced that it will provide $18.3M over the next five years for the network. “Collaboration will be a key component of this initiative, with the aim of identifying critical research gaps and opportunities that link Canada’s inter-jurisdictional mountainous regions,” explained UAlberta professor and CMN Research Co-Director and President Stan Boutin. “We are harnessing existing capacities and seeking new research relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers and communities.” UAlberta Edmonton Journal (AB)
