Institute of Meteorology and Water Management - National Research Institute (IMGW-PIB), which started its activity in 1919 is a research-development entity. Among the basic tasks of the Institute, one should mention performing scientific-research works and public services for the benefit of the society with regard to hydrological-meteorological protection, water management and engineering, quality of water resources, wastewater management and others. The Institute completes its tasks through the National Hydrological-Meteorological Service and Technical Service of Dam Control, closely co-operating with specialised scientific cells.

Except for research and development activity, the Institute completes a number of implementation works, maintains an observation-measurement network, develops forecasts and opinions/analyses.
