The IP Catchment Dynamics benefits from various cooperations, be they internal (inside UFZ and the Helmholtz Association), national or international.
On a national level the IP works with numerous individual groups at universities and other research institutions (e. g. Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries – IGB and Leibniz-Zentrum für Agrarlandschaftsforschung (ZALF) e. V.). The IP also cooperates with larger research associations (e. g. the DFG funded research group CAOS – catchments as organized systems). Furthermore the IP works closely with stakeholders and policy makers inside water management (e. g. Dam Operation Services Saxony-Anhalt – TSB, Federal Authority for Flood Protection and Water Management Saxony-Anhalt – LHW).
On an international level the IP participates in large, EU financed projects, e. g. ITN Interfaces and cooperates with the US National Water Quality Assessment Program (NAWQA).
