Collaboration with Deltares

Deltares is intensively involved in eight of the ten TKIs: Delta Technology, Water Technology, Offshore Energy, Maritime, Urban Energy, Construction and Engineering, Agri and Food Horticulture and Starting Materials.

Only in cooperation with clients, knowledge institutes and market parties can we meet the societal challenges in the field of water, subsoil and infrastructure. The TKI scheme is an important driver to develop applicable knowledge that is needed.

Deltares is contributing to this project with its unique experimental facilities and expert modelling knowledge:
