Welcome to the Water Research Network Baden-Württemberg

Hohlohsee im Schwarzwald

The scope of the Water Research Network is to enhance the collaboration across disciplines and locations in Baden-Württemberg in order to meet the future challenges of water research. The network was founded at the initiative of the Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg (Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of the Land of Baden-Württemberg).

The Water Research Network is supported by the new Water Research Funding Programme of the Land of Baden-Württemberg. As a central component, three interdisciplinary joint projects, so called 'Forschernetzwerke' (researcher networks), are being funded for a period of five years.

Under this call, funding for workshops or summer-/winter-schools in water research can be requested.

Deadline for proposals: 14 February 2018
