7 January – 2 February 2019 Laszlo van der Wal (The Netherlands) with the support of Dr. Lukas Löschner (BOKU Vienna) investigated the degradation of existing hydraulic infrastructures and the dynamics of their renovation or replacement  at Vienna’s Donau (Danube river). The understanding of how (hydraulic) infrastructures interact with geology, socio-cultural or institutional aspects is still limited. Therefore, the STSM was focused on data collection along two 18 kilometre long sections along the Donau.

The results of the STSM were submitted as an abstract for presentation at AESOP 2019 in Venice.
