Adaptation for Climate Change

HYDRALAB brings together European researchers and stakeholders to improve experimental research focusing on adaptation to climate change.

Countries worldwide are being faced with the severe consequences of climate change: sea level rise, extreme river discharges, more frequent storm events, and more wave and river-flow impacts on their coasts and riparian margins.

To be prepared for the future, new knowledge from experimental hydraulic and environmental research is needed to design sound climate change adaptation solutions. HYDRALAB bridges the gap between scientists, manufacturers of hi-tech measurement technics, policy makers and end users who can rely on the projects’ results.
