CentrEau has been writing, creating and sharing the "Did you know that" capsules on its website as well as on its various social networks (YouTube, Facebook and LinkedIn) since April 2020. The capsules are created in French and in English.

We are offering members the opportunity to have their research work the main subject of one of our Did you know that clips! You just have to write the text and we'll take care of the video production!

As a partner, your participation in this project will allow you to:

  • Bring notoriety to your research project
  • Have an original animated video (value of about $300) in your files about your research project in order to use it in the future (promote a project, portfolio, etc.), free of charge
  • Your name will be mentioned as the author of the text at the end of the video, in its description and in the posts our our social media
  • Your article/dissertation/thesis will be mentioned in the references at the end of the video

We therefore ask you to write a short text which summarizes in an easy-to-understand way one or more results of your research project while respecting the following criteria:

  • Your text must be well popularized, because it is aimed at a very large audience. As an exercise, we recommend that you have someone read your text who has no training in the water sector and ask them if they understood correctly.
  • Your text must be split into a minimum of 3 sentences and a maximum of 6 distinct sentences.
  • Your text should be no longer than 1 minute when read aloud at medium to low speed.
  • You must add all the sources consulted to write the text.
  • The topic should be interesting and appeal to a general audience.
  • Your data/results mentioned in your text must be final data, specifically data that will not be modified in the future.
  • You must write your text in both French and English, but we will help you with the translation.
  • The title of your capsule must contain fewer than 50 characters.
  • The text will be revised by our team.

To participate in this partnership opportunity, we invite you to send an email to info@centreau.org with the subject “Capsule SVQ”.

We also ask you to write your text in a Word format named "SVQ_LASTNAME_Firstname.docx" with the form template suggested here ». You will also find in the template an example of an old text from a did you know that capsule (in green) to better guide you during your writing process.

You may send us your final text of your did you know that whenever you want.

We will contact you afterwards to let you know if your text has been selected. Note that there is no selection limit, multiple texts can be selected, as long as they match the criteria described above.

This opportunity only concerns CentrEau's members.

We wish you good success with your writing and hope to be able to do a partnership with you for this great project!

We can't wait to hear from you!
