National Institute of Hydrology and Water Management (INHGA)
The National Institute of Hydrology and Water Management (NIHWM) is a public institution and a subunit of the National Administration “Romanian Waters”, the national authority in hydrology, hydrogeology and water management. NIHWM develops research activities and provides operational services of national and international public interest for the protection and socio – economic well – being of people. NIHWM`s activities help improve people’s quality of life and help protect the environment. The main domain of activity are: surface hydrology - studies and research, hydrogeological studies and research, experimental hydrology, hydrological warnings and forecasts, hydrometry, water management and ecohydrology, studies for river basin management plans, water quality protection, hydrotelecommunications, operation and service for automatic stations, information technology, database and GIS. The National Centre of Hydrological Forecasts is managing and maintaining, at a national level, the operative services (warnings and short, medium or long term hydrological forecasts), activity that is done with the purpose of avoiding the loss of human lives and to reduce the damages done by extreme hydrological events. NIHWM has a vast experience in international research-development projects managed and/or financed by the National Hydrologic Program - PHI UNESCO, European Union, Operative Hydrology Program from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and in national projects. The NIHWM also represents Romania at the WMO in the field of hydrology.
INHGA (P4) will coordinate the definition of technical specifications activities for SCADA, CDSS and ACT systems; will develop and implement the hydrological modelling module within CDSS, and will have an important contribution also in development of the expert system databases and in systems testing phase, results dissemination and in promoting the project.
