The partnership between the Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) and the Ontario Waste Management Association (OWMA) provides a more effective means to evaluate and oversee direct independent scientific research and educational initiatives of specific interest in Canada. The two organizations met with industry executives recently to discuss the partnership, which aims to strengthen EREF’s funding of Canadian-based research and scholarships.  During this meeting, key research needs were identified and there was discussion on how the EREF organization will be structured in Canada. We'd like to get your feedback on your specific research needs and the Canadian governance structure.
