The vision of the founding members of ARC is to be the European scientific collaboration of reference in the creation and application of knowledge associated with the complete water cycle.
The mission of ARC is to catalyse the transition towards enhanced and more sustainable watercycle system services in Europe by:
- Increasing the stock of knowledge through research in a European Collaborative Framework;
- Supporting, demonstrating and implementing new applications through action research with end users;
- Strengthening the European watercycle research system by utilizing synergies between Europe’s leading watercycle research institutes and by capacity building in regions of Europe not yet connected to the European science system.
