IWW Activities

The Institute for Water and Watersheds engages in a variety of activities related to fresh water research and education.  These include:


  • Assembling diverse research teams and leading interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary water research projects.  In October 2010, the IWW began the NSF-supported Willamette Water 2100 project.
  • Offering training and access to water quality and stable isotope analysis facilities through a shared laboratory called the IWW Collaboratory.
  • Participating in the WERA 1020, Western Water Resources, as a representative of Oregon's land-grant university, Oregon State University to integrate water resources research, teaching, and outreach in the western U.S.
  • Facilitating collaboration between policy makers, water managers, university faculty and students.
  • Supporting community and education by sponsoring events and producing a weekly campus water newsletter.
  • Assisting water faculty with project development and management including maintaining a database of funding opportunities.
