UNESCO-IHE Institute of Water Education (IHE Delft): Partner 22

UNESCO-IHE Institute of Water EducationIHE-Delft is a world-leading education and research institute running Master of Engineering and Master of Science programmes. During its 45 years of history more than 12000 professional participants from more than 80 countries have been trained at IHE in water, environment and transportation. IHE has 140 staff (70 scientific and 70 supporting). In addition, IHE has about 400 highly qualified part-time visiting staff from all over the world.

Key expertise in research is integrated water resources management, hydrology, coastal and rivers engineering, sanitary engineering, hydroinformatics. The department of Hydroinformatics and Knowledge Management that takes part in this project is active in the following research areas: modeling and propagation of risk and uncertainties; data, information and knowledge systems developments; knowledge engineering and management; E-learning and learning systems development. During the last 6 years staff of this department participated in 6 EU projects published more than 140 papers in the peer-reviewed journals and international conferences.

Coastal engineering staff participating in this project are active in research work related to overtopping, stability and hydraulic performance of coastal structures (dikes, revetments and breakwaters), flood risk assessment in coastal zones, design approaches for coastal defences, development options for flood control and response of dynamically stable structures to wave attack.
