Call for Proposals - Projects in the field of River Information Services (RIS) 2012 TEN-T-2012-RIS Closed!


Please note that the deadline for submissions has been extended until the 26 March 2013.

The overall objective of this call for proposals is to foster the deployment of "RIS Intelligent Infrastructure", reflecting a European wide harmonised implementation of River Information Services (RIS), as regulated through Directive 2005/44/EC which defines binding rules for data communication and RIS equipment as well as the minimum level of RIS Services for future RIS implementations.

For the programming period of 2007-2013, projects shall focus on the deployment of enabling infrastructure and on the provision of River Information Services. The multiplicity of these services requires a high level of interoperability and compatibility of the services themselves, of the enabling technologies behind and of the related processes.


The RIS Masterplan identified a number of technical issues which are considered key priorities in the context of the TEN-T programme:

  • Technical issues related to interoperability, testing of technologies, implementation of new harmonised RIS systems, etc
  • Organisational issues related to the responsibilities and tasks among the authorities related to River Information Services
  • Legal issues such as administrative agreements for international data exchange and related issues
