The International Association for Danube Research (IAD) was founded in 1956 and is the longest existing international scientific network in the Danube Region. IAD is an Association according to Austrian law with the goal of promoting and coordinating activities in the fields of limnology, water management, water protection and sustainable development in the Danube River basin (current structure and contact).

In 1998 IAD obtained observership in the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR). Our delegates participate in various Expert Groups and develop tools and measures to protect the Danube River and to reach a sustainable river basin management as ultimate goal of the Water Framework Directive (EU-WFD)

As representative of the scientific community IAD also actively supports the implementation of the macro-regional EU-Danube Strategy as a step towards sustainable development in the Danube region.
