NCR will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2023 by organizing a Summerschool for PhD students, postdocs and young professionals working with rivers. It will consist of a series of lectures and tutorials in topics such as River Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics, Ecohydraulics, Sediment Transport and River Morphodynamics, both from a technical and a management perspective. A field trip for data collection and an excursion to a river engineering project managed by Rijkswaterstaat (Executive agency of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management) will be part of the Summer School.

All lectures and tutorials will be given in English and the Summer School will welcome participants from all over the world. Active participation and a poster presentation in the Summer School will be awarded with 2 ECTS.

Target audience

The target audience of the NCR Summer School is young professionals, including PhD students and postdocs who are working on river-related research projects. An informal interactive poster session with the  participants’ PhD or other current research projects will be held on the first day of the Summer School. In this session, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss their projects with the Summer School participants and some of the lecturers.
