G³⁶⁰ forms an Advisory Board in 2018!

The G360 Institute for Groundwater Research was founded by Dr. Beth Parker in 2007 at the University of Guelph. Originally called the G360 Centre for Applied Groundwater Research, the name changed in 2017 to the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research to better reflect the numerous successful and continual collaborations between the G360 group and researchers at Universities around the globe.

To ensure the long-term success and growth of the Institute at the University of Guelph, G360 assembled an Advisory Board to provide strategic input to the G360 Directorship on a variety of matters relating to the Institute’s vision and mission and its relationship to the internal (University of Guelph) and external environments.

The Board will meet two times per year. Its inaugural meeting was held on February 28ᵗʰ of this year and a 2ⁿᵈ meeting followed on the 19ᵗʰ September 2018.

The Board members were selected for their broad and applicable experience in the domain of subsurface characterization and/or their relevance to the Institute’s interests at the University. Get to know the board members here.
