Throughout the world aquatic ecosystems have experienced environmental degradation. Present remedial measures based on engineering and technological fix have been unable to restore the ecological processes and reinstate the full beneficial functions and services of degraded aquatic ecosystems. The Erasmus Mundos Master of Science Course in Ecohydrology will provide to students a profound knowledge and understanding of the ecological processes that support the resilience of aquatic ecosystems, and how these processes can be harmonized with engineering infrastructures at the river basin and used to sustain aquatic ecosystems quality and revert degradation.

The ERASMUS MUNDUS MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ECOHYDROLOGY (ECOHYD) gathers the expertise from a consortium constituted to include complementary expertises from four European HEI (Portugal, Poland, Netherlands and Germany) and one Third Country University (Argentina). Expertise on estuarine and coastal ecosystems Ecohydrology will be provided by the University of Algarve (Portugal); expertise in freshwater and urban ecohydrology will be provided by the University of Lodz (Poland); and the engineering and management components will be provided by UNESCO-IHE (Netherlands) and University of Kiel (Germany).
