The Knowledge Community Southwest Delta focuses on knowledge from (scientific) research, applied research, project research, consultancy assignments, education and field and practical experience.
In 2018, the Southwest Delta Knowledge Community will be a facilitated group of participating professionals who meet regularly and inform each other about knowledge questions and research that are running or will be ongoing in the Southwest Delta, so that opportunities for connection are identified. In 2018, for example, the foundation was laid for a close-knit community in which participants work together to address, invest and finance knowledge questions.
The Monitoring and Research Directorate for Water and Nature Southwest Delta of the managing authorities and knowledge institutes can then turn the opportunities for more effective and efficient research into action. The knowledge and important experiences recorded in reports are recorded in an accessible manner on the Delta expertise site.
We distinguish between the Southwest Delta as a whole and the systems such as Oosterschelde and Veerse Meer, Volkerak-Zoommeer, Grevelingen and Rijn-Maasmonding in sub-communities or separate living labs. It is the intention to (also) set up sub-communities per system.
