On February 21 and 22, IC-IMPACTS, the Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University), and the Department of Biotechnology (Government of India) held a scoping workshop in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India with Canadian and Indian researchers to develop a plan for the pilot demonstration for the rejuvenation of a stretch of the River Ganga near Varanasi.

The pilot demonstration will create scalable solutions that can be implemented in Canada and elsewhere in India. This living laboratory is a collaboration that will demonstrate international research and solutions to effectively clean water systems, particularly in Canada and India.
