Bridging Science and Practice

The Institute of Environmental Engineering IfU and the Laboratory of Hydraulics, Hydrology, and Glaciology VAW invite you to join us on 30th of January, 2024, for the exciting ETH Ecohydraulics Day in Zurich. We will host interesting presentations and discussions, with contributions from science, practice, and public offices, on three main ecohydraulic themes:

Hydropeaking & Environmental Flow

Fish Passage

Habitat Assessment & Restoration

Program & Speakers

On each theme there will be a session with a keynote, presentations, and a discussion. After lunch a tour of the ETH ecohydraulics facilities will show ongoing research and projects at ETH Zürich. There will be plenty of time to exchange and continue discussions at the apero and evening dinner.

The program is available as PDF.


Registration closed on the 4th of December 2023. The registration fee of 50 CHF covers participation for the entire day, including dinner.


If you work on topics associated with the sessions in the program and would like to present a poster to showcase it, please indicate your interest and the title of your poster during the registration process. Posters should be DIN A0 portrait format. Please be aware that poster space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the ETH Ecohydraulics Day in January 2024!
