Who we are?

radarThe CRAHI, The center of Applied Research in Hydrometeorology (CRAHI) was founded as a result of an agreement between the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), the Catalonia Department of the Environment and the Catalonian Water Agency. These entities agreed on the need of a hydrometeorological research group in Catalonia. The CRAHI became one of the centers of the Technological Innovation Network of Catalonia (xarxa IT) in January 2002.

The CRAHI focuses its activity on providing scientific and technological support in the area of hydrometeorological management and forecasting, particularly on developing models of the processes that drive the cycle of surface waters.

The CRAHI aims to be a pioneer center in hydrometeorological research, which will enable it to be a leader in technology transfer and in the support of innovation in the companies in the sector.

It operates within a framework that fosters the creative and innovative spirit of the group's researchers.
