IHCantabria

IHCantabria is a joint research institute that emerged thanks to the collaboration between two institutions: the Universidad de Cantabria and the Government of Cantabria, represented through the Foundation for the Institute of Environmental Hydraulics of Cantabria.

IHCantabria was created on March 22, 2007, World Water Day, when two research groups from the Advanced School for Civil Engineering at the Universidad de Cantabria, which had been engaged in intensive scientific-technical activity in subjects related to continental and coastal water engineering, combined into one.

mission

MISSION

To provide knowledge, evidence, methods, tools and technology relevant to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with special emphasis on the water cycle related SDGs, following an integrated, transdisciplinary, stakeholder- oriented approach in a collaborative framework.

VISION

To become one of the world leading institutes in delivering science based innovative solutions and education for a more sustainable planet with special emphasis on the water cycle.

activities

To achieve its objectives, the Institute engages in three types of activities: Research, Technology Transfer and Training.

 

  • Basic and applied research, the purpose is to expand the frontiers of the state of knowledge of the sciences and technologies related to the water cycle and associated systems.
  • Technology Transfer, the purpose is transfer the achievements made during the basic and applied research to take the specific achievements made from studying the integrated water cycle and pass them on to society for its benefit. This is carry out by setting up solid channels for transferring knowledge, methodologies and tools to government agencies and national and international companies.
  • Training, the purpose is to teach and empower researchers, specialists and managers who, in the future, will have to make good on the goals of sustainable development.
