Integrated Infrastructure Initiative HYDRALAB-III

Objective

HYDRALAB-III is an Integrated Infrastructure Initiative with the objective to optimise the important position of laboratory experiments in the field of Hydraulics, Geophysical Hydrodynamics, Environmental Fluid Dynamics, Ship Dynamics and Ice Engineering (HyGESI). HYDRALAB-III will implement this by a coordinated program of transnational access, joint research activities and networking activities, destined to improve, refine and harmonise the use of the available high-quality facilities and measuring methods in these fields.

HYDRALAB-III will improve the performance of unique experimental facilities through a balanced combination of activities:
- Networking activities (4), in which HYDRALAB-III will be managed, knowledge will be disseminated to the HyGESI community and the use of high-quality facilities and measuring methods will be improved.
- Complementary Access activities (9) to 22 experimental facilities throughout Europe. Enabling researchers to carry out research in facilities to which, if it wasn't for this programme, they normally would have no access to.
- Two mutually focussed Joint Research Activities on:
A. improving methods of modelling the interactions between beaches and structures by developing composite modelling techniques
B. innovating instruments and good-practice protocols for mobile bed tests HYDRALAB-III also specifically focuses on the involvement of females and young researchers.

By doing so, HYDRALAB-III will have a long-term integrating effect on the operation and interaction of the infrastructures in HyGESI, with the perspective of establishing a series of virtual European Laboratories, thus contributing to the structuring of the European Research Area (ERA).
