Hydrological studies and  development of water resources

Hydrological studies and development of water resources

We do environmental data research, analysis, consultancy, and water development projects. We streamline professional experience on hydrology with the advanced use of data and information science. We are actively involved in the management and development of the EU institutional water databases, applying our experience in the European, national, and local projects.

We are part of the European Topic Centre on Inland, Coastal, and Marine Waters (ETC/ICM Water), which implements water-related tasks under the European Environment Agency.

The tasks include management of the environmental data in information systems; development of the environmental indicators; expert assessment of the state of water; and support to environmental policies of the EU.

Our wishes

Status of European waters

We strive for maintaining good quality of waters in Europe and being resilient to extreme water events.

Healthy drinking water

We wish to drink healthy drinking water in Europe. We also wish to use water resources for other needs, sustainably.

Plants and animals

We want to secure the European water ecosystems to sustain vital and heterogenous fish, amphibian, bird, mammal, and reptile populations. We are happy to see thriving indigenous vegetation.

Swimming and recreation

We foresee the European waters attractive for bathing and other recreation.
