Abstract


The mission of the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA) is to implement a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to water research, taking into account all components related to freshwaters and human-used waters. The ICRA has developed a coordinated, cooperative organization structure to allow this multidisciplinary approach across a broad spectrum of water related sciences and technologies. ICRA’s main goals are to provide scientific and technological perspectives and tools to issues derived from water needs, scarcity, and ecosystem conservation in the Mediterranean context.
