BfG Federal Institute of Hydrology
Within the federal system of Germany, responsibilities for waters are divided between national authorities and those of the federal states, the Länder. As a scientific institution ranking as a supreme federal agency, the BfG is responsible for the German waterways in federal ownership. In this position it has a central mediating and integrating function. It is our mission to contribute to the implementation and operation of an efficient and environment-friendly transport system.
By improving our national infrastructure we want to boost Germany`s economic power, strengthen Germany as an investment and industrial location and secure its position in a European context. We realise our range of themes and services with the support of our scientific departments and internationally oriented organisational structures. Our IT department, our administration, and our controlling unit are the mainstays of our efficient performance.
