W.A.T.E.R. stands for Workshop on Advanced
measurement Techniques and Experimental Research. It is
an initiative started in 2016 in association with the Experimental
Methods and Instrumentation (EMI) committee of
the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering
and Research (IAHR) aimed at advancing the use of
experimental techniques in hydraulics and fluid mechanics
research. It provides a structured approach for the learning
and training workshop series to postgraduate students (aiming
specifically at doctoral students), young researchers, and
professionals with an experimental background in fluid mechanics.
It offers an opportunity to learn about state-of-theart
instrumentation and measurement techniques and the latest
developments in the field by partnering with manufacturers.
W.A.T.E.R. brings together academics, instrumentation
manufacturers and public sectors in a structured setting to
share knowledge and to learn from good practices. It is about
training people who already have a certain knowledge and
skill level but who need to go deeper and/or wider in the field
of measurement and experimental research.
