FLUMEN és un institut universitari de recerca de titularitat mixta entre la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya i el Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria. FLUMEN té com objecte desenvolupar activitats de recerca, assessorament, formació i transferència de tecnologia en els camps de la Dinàmica Fluvial i de l'Enginyeria Hidrològica. FLUMEN fou creat per la Generalitat de Catalunya mitjançant l'ordre ECO/305/2012 de 3 d'octubre (DOGC de 17 d'octubre de 2012).

The group?s main goal is research and consultation in river dynamics and surface hydrology. For over fifteen years, the group has worked in R&D in these areas. At present, the consolidated working lines are as follows:
1) Urban hydrology. Large-scale rainwater drainage systems and flooding in urban environments.
2) The effect of reservoirs on natural river behaviour.
3) Impact of infrastructures on natural hydrological characteristics.
4) Floods and measures for minimising the risk of inundation.
5) River restoration.
6) Physical limnology of reservoirs.
7) Dam hydraulics.
8) Design and automation of channels.
A further objective is to organise a multidisciplinary team in river dynamics. Ten years ago, the group began to cooperate with members of the Department of Ecology at the University of Barcelona. The cooperation is based on lecturing, PhD supervision, scientific publications, research projects and consulting. UPC and the UB have recently signed a framework agreement that aims to strengthen t
