The DANUBIUS-RI services result from the interplay of various disciplines. This allows to scientifically address the major challenges of River-Sea Systems. Therefore, several categories of services have been developed in DANUBIUS-RI:
Establish and provide access to facilities and equipment for
- observation (e.g. field equipment, research platforms),
- analysis (e.g. laboratories),
- socio-economic impact studies (e.g. innovation lab),
- modeling (e.g. high-performance computing) of River-Sea Systems.
Develop and provide access to methods and tools, such as
- algorithms, sensor and machine learning technologies,
- methods and standards for sampling and analysis,
- coupled models (e.g. “from catchment to coast”) and “what if?” scenario applications,
- concepts, methods and tools to support governance, policy-making and management of River-Sea Systems.
Generate and provide access to comparable data in River-Sea Systems, such as
- earth observation and in situ data over large areas and over time,
- ex situ data at representative locations over time,
- modelled data among others to fill gaps from observation and analysis.
Bring together and integrate knowledge to
- advance process and system understanding,
- co-create scenarios and solutions with stakeholders,
- identify research questions with stakeholders for further observation, analysis and modeling.
Exchange and support with/from experts to
- bundle interdisciplinary expertise,
- provide training regarding observation and analysis, modeling and socio-economic impact studies in River-Sea Systems.
