Water Resources Research Centre (VITUKI): Partner 21

Water Resources Research CentreVITUKI’s predecessor was founded in 1886 as a department of the Ministry for Transport and Public Works. The institute performs both basic and applied research, as well as studies related to the development and management of water resources of the country. The present public limited company is supported by hydraulic, hydrochemical, hydrobiological, wastewater technological and soil mechanical laboratories, equipment, instrumentation and computer facilities. It represents an institute of the integrated water management. At present, there are about 70 qualified specialists out of total 200 employees, including civil, chemical, electrical, mechanical engineers, geologists, biologists, geophysicists and mathematicians. Close contacts with several scientific institutes in Hungary enable VITUKI to organise multidisciplinary teams for particular projects. VITUKI offers a comprehensive range of research, consulting and engineering services through three institutes, namely the institute for Hydrology, Hydraulic Engineering and Water Pollution Control. Thus, VITUKI is capable to carry out studies on the quantity and quality of the surface and ground waters. VITUKI is the reference centre of WHO and WMO concerning water quality and hydrology respectively. VITUKI gives frame to the Hungarian National Hydrological Service, which collects daily hydrological data from the whole Danube basin and issues hydrological forecasts. VITUKI edits regular and periodical publications (like Vízügyi Közlemények, the professional journal of the Hungarian Water Service). VITUKI acts as National Focal Point in the „Environmental Program for the Danube River basin” co-ordinated by the Secretariat of the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River in Vienna and contributed to the Accident Emergency Warning and in Monitoring, Laboratory and Information Management sub-groups. Several staff members hold posts in international scientific organisations (IAHS, IAHR, ICID) or have served as experts for UNDP, UNESCO, FAO, WHO, WMO in Europe and in developing countries. VITUKI participated in several international projects. VITUKI, as a fully state owned organisation, is supervised by the Ministry of Environment and Water Management.
