W.A.T.E.R. stands for Workshop on Advanced measurement Techniques and Experimental Research.

It is an initiative started in 2016 by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in cooperation with Experimental Methods and Instrumentation (EMI) committee of the International Association for Hydroenvironment Research (IAHR).

W.A.T.E.R. is aimed to advance the use of experimental techniques in hydraulics and fluid mechanics research. It combines theoretical sessions and hands-on measurement exercises in the laboratory and field. It provides a structured approach for the learning and training workshop series to postgraduate students (aiming specifically at doctoral students), young researchers, and practitioners who are willing to get training in advanced hydraulic measurement techniques.

The 7th edition will be held at the Oscar von Miller Hydraulic Research facilities of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) from 24 – 28 July 2023, and it is co-organized by TUM and VUB.
