Remediation Education Network (RENEW)

The Remediation Education Network (RENEW) is is a Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC). The RENEW Program will train the next generation of engineers and scientists in the interdisciplinary professional and technical skills they need to work at cleaning up the most challenging contaminated sites in Canada. Contamination of soil and groundwater is an urgent problem affecting 30,000 sites in Canada alone that engages over 60,000 workers in the growing and vital environmental sector. Four Canadian universities, eleven international academic institutions, and eight leading environmental remediation firms will collaborate on this training and research program.
