Analysis Node Elbe-North Sea Supersite Middle Rhine Supersite Services

Pan-European DANUBIUS-RI


DANUBIUS-RI, the International Centre for Advanced Studies on River-Sea Systems, is a pan-European distributed Research Infrastructure (RI), which is enabling integrated studies of rivers and their catchments, transitional waters such as estuaries, deltas and lagoons, and their adjacent coastal seas.

DANUBIUS-RI regards River-Sea Systems as social-ecological systems, where natural processes and human activities are intertwined. That is why DANUBIUS-RI has chosen an integrated, interdisciplinary and participatory approach in order to enhance the process and system understanding and to enable a sustainable management of River-Sea Systems.
