Deltares is an independent institute for applied research in the field of water and subsurface. Throughout the world, we work on smart solutions, innovations and applications for people, environment and society.
From the perspective of water, the subsurface and infrastructure, we will be working on four Mission Areas in which we set out our contributions to the international and Dutch agendas and tasks: Future deltas, Sustainable deltas, Safe deltas and Resilient infrastructure.
Managing densely populated and vulnerable areas is complex, which is why we work closely with governments, businesses, other research institutes, universities and NGO’s at home and abroad.
Knowledge is our core business
Our mission is Enabling Delta Life. As an applied research institute, the success of Deltares can be measured in the extent to which our expert knowledge can be used in and for society. For Deltares the quality of our expertise and advice comes first.
All contracts and projects, whether financed privately or from strategic research budgets, contribute to the consolidation of our knowledge base. Furthermore, we believe in openness and transparency, as is evident from the free availability of our software and models. Open source works is our firm conviction. Deltares is a not-for-profit organisation, employs 850 people, 42 different nationalities and is based in Delft and Utrecht.
