KINDRA: Knowledge Inventory for Hydrogeology Research
‘This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement nº.642047’
PROJECT NUMBER: 642047 – START DATE: 01.01.2015 – DURATION: 36 MONTHS
Groundwater and hydrogeology-related research activities cover a wide spectrum of research areas at EU and national levels.
However, groundwater issues are quite often either ignored or considered only in insufficient detail and separated from the associated surface water bodies, despite groundwater’s critical importance as renewable, high-quality, naturally protected (but still vulnerable) resource that has significant impacts on both surface water bodies and ecosystems. The EU-funded KINDRA project seeks to take stock of our current knowledge of hydrogeology through an inventory of research results, activities, projects and programmes.
The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) is the leader on the data collection and processing to carry out EU-wide assessment of existing practical and scientific knowledge (using the developed HRC-SYS) focusing on EU, national, regional, international and EU-third party scientific activities. The IGI are a Linked Third Party for this Project.
