To bring together river and ocean research, the pan-European DANUBIUS-RI supports integrated research from source to sea by ...
providing access to facilities and equipment for observation, analysis, modelling and socio-economic impact studies; interoperable methods and tools, as well as comparable data in River-Sea Systems;
bringing together interdisciplinary knowledge, to advance process and system understanding, as well as bringing together relevant stakeholders to enhance the management of River-Sea Systems.
The Science & Innovation Agenda of DANUBIUS-RI provides the scientific basis for the content, development and operation of the research infrastructure. It provides the vision, mission, and conceptual approach of DANUBIUS-RI, as well as the research priorities.
The research program addresses the fundamental challenges in river-sea systems that arise as a consequence of global change. This concerns the influences of climate change, extreme events, and human use on the quantity and quality of water and sediment along the river-sea continuum, ecosystem structure and functioning, and the maintenance of ecosystem services essential to society.
