Water as connection

Discover Delta Platform

The continuous struggle against and cooperation with water has shaped the Netherlands and will continue to do so. Wherever land and water come together, major issues will resume to arise regarding the safety, availability and quality of water. Knowledge, collaboration and decisiveness are needed to transform the delta issues of our time into concrete, global solutions for the future.

Delta Platform facilitates associate professors and researchers from universities of applied sciences to use practical based research together with partners from the sciences, the market, the government and society for complex water-related area challenges. The knowledge that is thus built up will be directly applicable in education and in the professional practice. Delta Platform thus contributes to the continuous development of present-day and future delta professionals.

" About 80% of the world's population lives in a delta. The people who live and work here are facing many challenges. "
