NIVA Denmark Water Research is a regional office under the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA), which has a more than 60 year long history in applied aquatic sciences and science-based consultancy.
Research, commitment and independence are in our DNA at NIVA Denmark. Our focus is applied research in aquatic ecosystems and evidence-based consultancy. Key research areas include biodiversity, eutrophication, hazardous substances including marine litter and microplastics, and ecosystem health as well as the implications of multiple human activities in marine waters and in streams, rivers and lakes.
Around two thirds of our activities are applied research and innovation and one third is projects for government agencies, international organisations and industry.
