NAME OF ORGANISATION:
Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University Department of Environmental Engineering
We are looking for a collaboration within the topic of "Bridging the gap between potential and actual irrigation performance in the Mediterranean". Mediterranean region of Turkey is planned as study area. Water resources management and optimal water allocation will be performed in order to solve irrigation issues in the region.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
We are a research group interested in the areas of hydraulics, water resources management, hydrology, watershed management, water allocation modelling, hydraulic and water quality modelling of surface waters (lake, river), air pollution modelling in Department of Environmental Engineering in Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University, Turkey. Academic staff are Prof. Dr Nusret Karakaya, Prof. Dr Fatih Evrendilek, Assoc. Prof. Dr Fatma Öztürk, Lecturer Dr Miraç Eryiğit in the research group. Also, Prof. Dr Bernard Engel (Head of Department of Agricultural & Biological Engineering in Purdue University) will collaborate with us.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
