HydroEurope Goal

"HydroEurope will create the first and only set of pedagogic resources dedicated to the development of flood resilience approach. The resources will be integrated within an innovative pedagogic approach fully integrated at the Master level by the different partner institutions.

The HydroEurope Project is based and developed on the close partnership between the academia and the professional sector. Differently from other theory-based Masters programmes, HydroEurope proposes a collaborative and innovative educational approach equipping participants with a combination of the necessary in-depth academic theoretical concepts and with an intensive practice approach and operational analysis of concrete case studies of various European catchments located in the project partner countries. The pedagogic approach is based on the team work with an international distribution of the team mates within the different participating institutions."


     HydroEurope Program

HydroEurope  is preceded by a preparatory phase of 3 months which divided in 5 steps :

  • Preprocessing: Catchment & subcatchment delimitation with GIS tools
  • Hydrological modelling: Calculate the discharge by using physical based and lumped rainfall-runoff models 
  • Hydraulic modelling: Produce floodmap by using shallow water equation model implemented in different softwares
  • Groundwater modelling:  Perform groundwater flow simulations
  • Flood damage & resilience: Analyse the flood resilience with the local landuse information and floodmap

Regularly, some work and reports must be done  by each team. You can see the program in organisation chart.
