CIAS is pleased to announce that our interim director Michel Wattiaux received a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program award in dairy science for the 2022-2023 academic year from the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
Director Wattiaux is among over 800 U.S. citizens who will conduct research and/or teach abroad for the 2022-2023 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program. He will be hosted by colleagues at the Université Laval, Québec, Canada to conduct research on the use of the Agroecological Elements to assess the sustainability of dairy systems.
“I am looking forward to working with a multi-disciplinary team of scientists to explore ways to enhance the dairy sector’s contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals” said Wattiaux. CIAS is interested in furthering the work to add components for Wisconsin, and perhaps Mexico, to better understand the North American dairy industry.
