NSERC HydroNet proposal to the program Strategic Network Enhancement Initiative (SNEI) has been successful.

This program is available to Strategic Networks and is aimed at providing additional support to networking activities.

In NSERC HydroNet proposal to SNEI, two major networking activities have been identified:

  1. a Workshop titled “Hydropower, Policies, and Science”; and

  2. a joint HydroNet-CEDREN Workshop.

1) The objective of the “Hydropower, Policies, and Science” is to inform HydroNet’s members about current regulations (Canadian Environmental Assessment Act; Fisheries Act; Species at Risk Act), anticipated changes to these regulations, and new upcoming regulations (Environmental Flows). Six speakers from Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), Canadian Hydropower Association (CHA), and World Wildlife Funds (WWF) have confirmed their participation to this Workshop. This Workshop will take place in Ottawa on May 17th 2012.

2) The joint HydroNet-CEDREN Workshop aims at developing interactions (foster exchange of expertise, develop research collaborations and projects) with CEDREN. This Workshop will take place October 22nd to 24th, 2012, in Trondheim Norway.
