The Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW) is the central technical and scientific governmental agency for research and development into the federal waterways that covers the areas of structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and waterways engineering in inland and coastal areas. Applied practical research carried out in the individual sections acts as an active interface between pure scientific research and practical application, providing decision-making support to ensure appropriate fulfilment of specific tasks related to waterways engineering.
