Canadian and Indian Prime Ministers highlight IC-IMPACTS in joint statement on bilateral relations
In the first visit to Canada by an Indian Prime Minister in 42 years, the Honourable Narendra Modi was hosted by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper during a trip to Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver in mid-April, 2015.
In a joint statement addressing the full spectrum of bilateral relations between the two nations, the two Prime Ministers made special mention of IC-IMPACTS when addressing the topics of science, technology, innovation, and space. Holding IC-IMPACTS up as an example of a successful Indian-Canadian partnership for research and development offering benefits to society at large, the leaders agreed to provide further support to the type of work done by IC-IMPACTS, in the areas of safe and sustainable infrastructure, integrated water management, and public health.
"It's heartening to see a proud mention of IC-IMPACTS achievements in two prime ministers' joint statement," notes Civil professor and Scientific Director/CEO of IC-IMPACTS, Dr. Nemy Banthia. Read the joint statement in full.
IC-IMPACTS is a federally funded Canada-India Research Center of Excellence hosted at UBC. It’s the first International Network of Centers of Excellence.
