IRIS in a nutshell

IRIS Europe stands for "Implementation of River Information Services in Europe" and represents an international initiative, supported by the European Commission within the TEN-T funding programme, with the main objective to foster harmonised development and implementation of RIS on European level. The focus of this initiative is put on the enhancement of the RIS service portfolio in order to increase safety, efficiency and environmental friendliness of inland navigation.

The ongoing project IRIS Europe 3 is the third project within this initiative following IRIS Europe I (2006-2008) and IRIS Europe II (2009-2011). The projects can be seen as internationally coordinated projects of national priorities with a clear focus on pilot implementations.
