The Centre is a multidisciplinary research and monitoring institute designed to assist in the protection and management of northern aquatic ecosystems. It is a place of experimentation and innovation where top young scientists are trained.
The Centre is well equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and workshop and conference facilities. However, its uniqueness lies in its strong culture of collaboration and science communication, building on a long history of partnerships among scientists, universities, government agencies, and industries.
Here we have the makings of a true “incubator” of new ideas and approaches for the advancement of environmental science. Important too is the bold statement that the building itself makes – an award-winning building that demonstrates the best of energy and water saving technologies.
