IWRM-NET partners are very pleased to launch our first joint call related to Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) with a focus on the Water Framework Directive. IWRM-NET 's  first joint call is a trans-national initiative funded  by IWRM-NET partners who have agreed on a common research programme dealing with Integrated water Resource Management within the context of the Water Framework Directive implementation.

The focus of this call is applied research to support development of the 2015 river basin plans. IWRM-NET wishes to develop a series of case studies, which include field testing and applications that can be used by river basin managers across Europe. Trans-national collaborative research projects will be directed to the following two topics:

  • Hydrological and morphological pressures and impacts on ecological status
  • Water governance
