About Antonios Emmanouil

Antonios Emmanouil enjoys working together with others for a positive impact on society and the environment. He is committed to jointly tackling climate change and biodiversity loss. He is intrigued by the challenge of finding a balance between developing offshore renewables, restoring the ecosystem while accounting for the diverse interests and activities of various users at the sea. As a result, he focuses on the nature-inclusive and symbiotic design of offshore developments.

In 2014, Antonios graduated as a Civil Engineer from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece and then moved to the Netherlands where he received a Master’s degree in Hydraulic Engineering from TU Delft in 2017.

"In the projects I do, industry, innovators, research institutes and government work together to overcome challenges and explore opportunities. This is a great field of collaboration where independent knowledge development can have a direct impact. At Deltares, I have the space to use my engineering background at the intersection of energy transition, nature-inclusive design, and marine spatial planning. I particularly enjoy teaming up with colleagues of different expertise, such as ecology and governance. I believe that a multi-disciplinary approach is key in addressing the complex issues we face with Energy Transition and Biodiversity, in a systematic and inclusive way.”

Working as a researcher and consultant, Antonios has gained experience in physical and numerical modeling of infrastructure within the offshore environment as well as project management. Antonios recently coordinated Road2SID, a Joint-Industry Project that explored various stakeholder perspectives and led to a roadmap of actions for advancing symbiosis in offshore wind farms. He is always looking for opportunities to initiate Joint Industry Projects that research innovations to promote sustainability in offshore developments.
