- To investigate the effects of hydromorphological restoration on (1) river habitats, (2) biota and (3) ecosystem services, broken down by different restoration measures and scales
- To analyse the rationale of strong and weak effects of common hydromorphological restoration strategies at catchment, reach and local scales and to relate effects sizes to costs.
- To compare socio-economic costs and benefits at the project appraisal stage and compare them with actual expenditures.
- To test and improve standard protocols for evaluating the success of hydromorphological restoration, which are developed in WPs 2 and 6.
