Open HYPE Course 2020

September 8th – 10th  2020

Norrköping, Sweden

The course describes multi-basin hydrological modelling using HYPE at the local/regional scale. It is organized by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI).


The course presents the World-Wide HYPE (WWH) model structure, setup and current calibration for the globe. There will be lectures and exercises about the following themes:

  • improving the existing WWH model setup for a part of the world (your area of interest will be delivered by SMHI)
  • including your own data (river flow observations, catchment delineation, routing, land use, water bodies, forcing data P/T)
  • different calibration strategies and stepwise parameter estimation using multi-source data (provided by SMHI)


Due to the Covid-19 situation, please be aware that the course may be held online. We will make a decision regarding this in June.

  • The course is free of charge and open to anyone with a technical background in hydrological modelling.
  • Participants are expected to cover their own costs for travelling, accommodation and subsistence. Suggestions for accommodation and general information can be found here.
  • Participants are expected to bring their own laptop to the course and may bring their own data.

To register, complete the form before 17th June 2020.
