Thematic Focus Areas of the Water Research Network Baden-Württemberg

During the establishment phase of the network, an interdisciplinary working group identified future-related topics for water research in Baden-Württemberg and developed an innovative research and structure concept.

Based on the suggestions of the working group, the Ministry implemented 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 funded.

In addition, workshops and conferences are organized within the network to develop future-oriented research questions to open up longer-term perspectives.

Research activities focus on three higher-level aspects A - C and one cross-cutting issue Q:

A Material Balance and Water Quality

B Natural Hazards and Extreme Events

C Ecosystem Functions and Biodiversity

Q Governance of Water and Land Use
