HYDRALAB+ free access to major experimental facilities: Call for proposals

The major hydraulic experimental facilities located in DHI, will be open for access to scientists and researchers through the HYDRALAB+ infrastructure network and will have projects in both the Shallow Water Basin and the Offshore Wave Basin during the running period of HYDRALAB+ in DHI, from 2015 to 2019.

HYDRALAB+ is a network of research institutes with world-leading hydraulic and hydrodynamic experimental facilities. The HYDRALAB+ project is funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 program to strengthen the coherence of experimental research. By improving the infrastructures, researchers are able to focus on providing solutions to issues concerning adaptation to climate change.

This call invites all European scientists to submit a research proposal to undertake experiments in one of the 14 unique experimental facilities in the field of hydraulic, environmental and ice engineering research. Facilities will be made available free-of-charge with travel and subsistence support for scientists involved. The European Commission finances access for groups of researchers who work in the EU and Associated States (EU States and Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Israel, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine).

The deadline for submitting proposals is 2 December 2016.

It is highly recommended to send an e-mail to the institute of the facility of your choice (provider) to inform him/her of your intention to submit a proposal. This will provide an opportunity for feedback and assistance in project design.
