Strengthening research collaborations
Today the University of Winnipeg and the Government of Canada strengthened their relationship by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) aimed at increasing research collaborations and student opportunities. The goal is to share expertise on important challenges such as climate change and Indigenous economic development, and encourage the exchange of ideas through forums such as guest speakers and panelists. The MOU can become a knowledge-exchange model for universities and the federal government. Additionally, federal staff will work with UWinnipeg to identify and promote opportunities for students and alumni that are interested in the federal public service or in federally supported career initiatives. The MOU is the result of the Government of Canada’s Deputy Minister University Champions program.
