Collaborators

Promoting partnerships is one of the CIWESS core strategies. Collaboration and partnerships between experts from different disciplines, as well as between academics and representatives of industry, enables the movement of people, ideas, and tools throughout the public and private sectors. Collaboration with Engineers Without Borders, Kyoto University, Japan and Hanoi Water Resources University, Vietnam will enhance the development of the international training to obtain a Global Engineer.

Many more collaborators are expected to participate as the program progresses.
