20 research projects of TCBF II are supported by:
- free access to EO data,
- research supervision,
- training.

20 research projects receive support from the TIGER Capacity Building Facility. Their activities focus on EO applications in water quantity as well as quality at different geographic scales varying from medium to large (in many cases trans-boundary) basins.
