Deltares Takes Part in a Research Project

From March 1st 2015 onward, Deltares will be mobilizing Dutch knowledge questions with the aim of establishing the research agenda for the, soil-sediment-water system, subsurface and land use in Europe.

As the work package leader, Deltares will also be making sure that other European countries do the same. The Horizon2020 project to establish this specific knowledge agenda is known as INSPIRATION (Integrated Spatial Planning, land use and soil management Research ACTION).

Work package leader Jos Brils said: “That is, of course, mainly an excellent opportunity for getting strategic issues that we face in the Netherlands onto the agenda for European research, for example in the fields of scarce raw materials, the use of the subsurface or climate-adaptive planning. The Netherlands is already working on a national vision for the use of the subsurface (STRONG). And on climate-adaptive planning for cities by, for example, using nature-based solutions. This will give the strategic research a new impulse; it is both efficient and effective.

It is not surprising that Deltares, as a research institute for water, subsurface and infrastructure, is working on this venture.

National Focal Point” Linda Maring said: “We know what the questions are, and we also know many of the stakeholders, both national and international. In the Netherlands, we are working together with the TCB (the Soil Protection Technical Committee that deals with environmental policy for the soil). It is important for research issues to be contributed by all stakeholders.”

Jos Brils added: “We are working at the request of, and with assistance from, the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (IenM). This project is strategically important for our government.

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews ( holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
