We live in an era of climate, technological and demographic changes to which river systems are sensitive and require innovative integrated management in order to adapt to changes and ensure sustainability of their multiple uses.

Leading Universities, Companies and Organizations in Water Engineering and Management join to offer RIVER-ADAPT, an International PhD Program designed to foster research and technology transfer in River Systems.

Research Lines

  • Multifunctional River Systems (agriculture-energy-ecosystems conflicting uses & trade-offs)
  • Variability and extremes in river systems in the frame of Climate Change: floods & droughts and adaptation
  • Fluvial landscapes management and engineering
