Agricultural and environmental engineering research (CEMAGREF): Partner 32

Agricultural and environmental engineering research (CEMAGREF)Cemagref is a public agricultural and environmental research institute whose work focuses on sustainable development in non-urban areas. It contributes to the conservation and acceptable management of land and water systems, the growth of economic activity on a sustainable basis, and the prevention of associated risks. Its research usually addresses complex systems and their interaction with human society. An interdisciplinary approach is usually always appropriate. Besides advancing fundamental knowledge, Cemagref makes available its diagnostics and control methods, designs negotiation and management tools, develops innovative technologies and supports public and private enterprise with its skills and experience. Cemagref’s consolidated budget is 56 millions Euros. Income from contract work amounts to 14 millions Euros. Cemagref is a research institute employing about 1000 employees, 450 of whom are professional engineers and scientists. About one hundred PhD students and five hundred long-term trainees are present at the institute at any time. The 34 research units are organised into 4 scientific departments

Hydrology and hydraulics research unit: This unit which is part of the Fresh Water Systems Management scientific department is involved in regional hydrology and fluvial hydraulics. Large part of the research concerns flood management which leads to the participation to several projects during the 4th and 5th framework research program (Floodaware, Noah, Eurotas, Sphere…see web site wwwhh.lyon.cemagref.fr). The development of various software in fluvial hydraulics (Castor, Canal 9, Mage, Rubar 3, Rubar 20…), methodological guides in hydrology and the assistance to French public services are key tasks for passing the results of research to engineering and decision makers (example of Bourbre River management scheme). The unit is composed of about 20 researchers, engineers and technicians. The project staff will include A. Paquier, S. Proust, P. Ramez and A. Recking in hydraulics, and M. Lang and E. Sauquet in hydrology.
