1 DANUBIUS Danube International Centre for Advanced Studies for River-Delta-Sea systems Adrian Stănică GeoEcoMar Viorel Vulturescu M.E.N. Manuela Sidoroff INSB

2 What DANUBIUS will be? A Pan European R&D infrastructure in the field of integrated management of rivers-deltas-seas focused on Danube Black Sea macrosystem with a hub in Danube Delta a truly natural laboratory. having nodes as leading facilities and research centres dealing with processes, research methodologies and offering access to other parts of the Danube Black Sea macrosystem

3 Concept of DANUBIUS Schematic diagram of DANUBIUS

4 Mission of DANUBIUS To provide innovative, science-based innovative solutions for major actual environmental-related problems and to set the framework for sustainable development of Danube Danube Delta Black Sea system, as best practice for large river delta sea systems worldwide

5 Pyramid of knowledge at DANUBIUS Solutions Scenario analysis & forecasting modelling Environmental Economics Data & Sample Collection & Processing Analytical, Experimental & Sampling Methodology Schematic representation of the core capabilities of the Centre

6 The actors Initiative Present (Near) Future

7 Initiative The actors (institutions) Present

8 Principles of Centre s functioning as Pan-European distributed Research DANUBIUS will: Infrastructure become an ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) from the legal point of view have an international management have an International Scientific Board have an International General Council with participation of Shareholders

9 DANUBIUS WHAT WE HAVE SO FAR WORK IN PROGRESS STEPS TO BE TAKEN

10 DANUBIUS Hub 10 hectares available at Murighiol, administrator: Romanian National Institute for Biological Sciences - INSB Topography studies done Reference borehole for water supply & geothermal gradient done Permits & authorizations for building (32 permits) in progress

11 DANUBIUS Existing nodes in Romania (1) R/V Mare Nigrum tdw R/V Istros river and coastal research Laboratory boat Halmyris for the Danube Delta research Sulina Branch of the Institute of Biology

12 Existing nodes in Romania (2) MARINEGEOHAZARD Black Sea Early-Warning System funded by CBC RO-BG (6,5 Mil. Euro) MARINEGEOHAZARD is composed of: 1. EUXINUS network - the Black Sea regional early warning system to marine-geohazards marine observatories 2. GeoPontica network - the first on-line geodynamic surveillance network in the entire Black Sea region

13 1. The EUXINUS network - the western Black Sea regional early warning system to marine-geohazards Components of the EUXINUS cross-border infrastructure : Network of 5 complex, fully automatic marine stations (buoys) with automatic equipment for measuring the characteristics and the dynamics of water masses. Interconnected, national co-ordination Centres, located in Constanta, Romania and Varna, Bulgaria.

14 2. The GeoPontica network for geodynamic surveillance in the western Black Sea The GeoPontica network includes: - 18 on-line geodynamic stations located along the Romanian-Bulgarian coast; - 2 coordination Centres located in Constanta, Romania and Varna, Bulgaria

15 Planned nodes + negotiations with other research institutions to further develop nodes from Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Moldova, Ukraine, United Kingdom + atmospheric (GHG) monitoring and RI in the Delta as contribution to ESFRI ICOS NB THE LIST IS OPEN!!! looking towards: Netherlands, Norway, Serbia, Slovakia

16 Steps to be taken. towards creation and functioning of the Danube International Centre for River Delta-Sea systems take into account: 1. Research Infrastructure towards DANUBIUS ESFRI RI (National Project) 2. Human potential FP7 DANCERS 3. Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda FP 7 DANCERS

17 Short term plan ( ) 2013 DANUBIUS as Flagship Project PA 7 EUSDR Final Version the Scientific Case Study (already at v. 7.2) 2014 application of DANUBIUS as ESFRI ENV Pan- European Distributed Research Infrastructure Preparation of the Structural Funds Application for Romania Hub and nodes (partial): - Feasibility study and application for a major project - RO - Sectorial Operational Program for Research to include the Centre as a major project

18 Short term plan ( ) FP 7 DANCERS: "DANube macroregion: Capacity building and Excellence in River Systems (basin, delta and sea). - EC Grant agreement no: Deliverables: Toolbox of instruments containing: 1. Strategic research agenda, 2. Proposals for an integrated educational program with the full cooperation of partners from Danube - Black Sea Macrosystem. 3. Concept and detailed plan of the distributed research infrastructures for the Danube Black Sea Macrosystem

19 Mid-term plan (ESFRI) (after inclusion on ESFRI roadmap): ( ?) Preparatory Phase (PP) project for the Danube International Centre for Advanced Studies in Rivers- Deltas-Seas Planning and designing the legal framework; Detailed scheme of functioning for the centre; Interconnectivity with nodes, communication and specific aspects for e-infrastructures Aspects regarding the human potential and financial resources for a sustainable functioning of the Centre

20 Mid-term plan (Structural funds - construction) Phase (Basic constructions of the Hub) Buildings for field research activities on the river delta sea system Administrative building of the Centre and office building for scientists Main logistics

21 Mid-term plan (Structural funds - construction) Phase Specialized high-tech laboratories as agreed in the ESFRI Proposal Phase Specialized high-tech laboratories as agreed and resulted from the Preparatory Phase. Research Vessels to replace existing fleet for studying the river, delta and sea

22 Mid-term plan (ERIC) : Structuring the legal dimensions of the DANUBIUS - ESFRI ENV Distributed Research Infrastructure as ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) By 2020: DANUBIUS = Fully functional Pan-European distributed Research Infrastructure in the field of rivers deltas seas, legal status = ERIC

23 Thank you for your attention Looking forward to cooperating with Danube Region R&D organisations within DANUBIUS Adrian Stănică GeoEcoMar Viorel Vulturescu M.E.N. Manuela Sidoroff INSB
