Michel Wattiaux awarded Fulbright to study dairy sustainability in Canada

Michel Wattiaux, professor of animal and dairy sciences and director of the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems, has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for the 2022-2023 academic year from the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

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 [United Nations’] Sustainable Development Goals,” says Wattiaux.
