Graduate Research Assistant for the TRANSFORM Project

The proposed internship will take place in the TRANSFORM Research Hub located at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. The TRANSFORM Project comprises a global network of researchers committed to building the capacity of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in adopting truly sustainable business practices. The primary objective of this internship will be to support the development of a comprehensive database for the first phase of the TRANSFORM Project. During this phase, each research hub is expected to contribute to the database through the completion of 10-15 in-depth case studies of SMEs that have already implemented significant sustainable business practices. This internship role will contribute to the completion of 4-5 case studies through both desktop research and interviews with personnel in identified SMEs. This work will contribute directly to the future phases of the TRANSFORM Project, which include the creation of sustainability tool-kits and the development of government policy recommendations.
