Research collaborations within the NZ - China Water Research Centre were further strengthened this month with another NZCWRC Workshop.

In late December 2018 an MOU between the Chinese Scholarships Council and the New Zealand-China Research Collaboration Centres was signed in Beijing.

In 2018, the Water Research Centre secured a three year MBIE Strategic Research Alliance contract with Chinese partners the Beijing Academy of Agricultural and Forestry Sciences, and the Research Centre for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The New Zealand China Water Research Centre recently hosted a two day workshop at Lincoln University.

It was a busy first year for members of the NZ-China Water Research Centre who undertook two scoping visits to China.

Lincoln University has been named by Science and Innovation Minister Steven Joyce as one of three successful applicants to host a New Zealand-China Research Collaboration Centre, receiving a total of $1.25 million worth of funding over five years.
