DHI hosted HYDRALAB+ USP panel meeting
DHI hosted the User Selection Panel (USP) meeting for the facility providers of HYDRALAB+ for Hydraulics and Ice on 3 to 4 May 2016.
During the meeting, members of the consortium received and reviewed 72 proposals applying for access to the hydraulic facilities of HYDRALAB+. Only 15 out of these 72 proposals were selected and gained access to the facilities due to their merits and relevance to the theme ‘Adaptation to Climate Change’.
DHI is accompanied by nine other companies and universities in providing facilities for hydraulic projects. This list includes Deltares, Aalto University, French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), HR Wallingford, Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA), Leibniz University of Hannover, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, University of Hull and Polytechnic University of Catalonia.
Funded by the European Commission (EC), HYDRALAB+ is an infrastructure network for experimental research institutions in the field of environmental hydraulics and hydrodynamics. As a member of the consortium, DHI provides access to our hydraulic experimental facilities; namely the shallow water basin and offshore wave basin.
The USP meeting for Hydraulics and Ice held in DHI Denmark office marked the first call for proposals to attain access to the testing facilities. Another USP meeting, this one for Oceanography, took place in Grenoble on 11 May to review 4 eligible proposals.
