The TU Delft Safety & Security Institute aims to create a safer and more secure society.

Solving complex safety & security challenges needs transdisciplinary and integrated safety & security approaches. The institute hosts a large variety of safety and security approaches to engineering, which are united within the institute. They seek collaborations with industry and governmental organizations in, amongst others, joint research, technology transfer, deployment of joint research projects and education initiatives. Together, we are committed to contributing to knowledge, practice and policy in the area of safety & security.

Delta Urbanism focuses on new approaches in the design and planning of urbanised deltas that face extreme challenges from competing claims and interests. A balance must be found between on-going urbanisation, port-development, agriculture, environmental and ecological qualities, flood-defence systems and fresh-water supply. Balancing competing claims in deltas requires new relationships to be forged between design, engineering, science and governance.

Delft Deltas, Infrastructures & Mobility Initiative (DIMI) is developing integral solutions for urgent societal problems related to vital infrastructure for water safety and smart mobility, which are intrinsic to the natural and built environment. An integral approach, in which different disciplines cooperate, provides the best guarantee for finding these solutions. And this is precisely how we work at TU Delft Deltas, Infrastructures & Mobility Initiative (DIMI). The ‘Delft approach’ is integral, innovative and down to earth.

BNA is structured as a nationwide association with an office with a staff of 20 headed by a director and a board headed by a chairman. BNA membership is open to architectural offices and architects with their own practice or employed in the private or public sector.

Eén idee, 3 oplossingen

Het idee van Delta21 is een toekomstbestendige oplossing voor de zuidwestelijke delta. Een oplossing voor Waterveiligheid, Energietransitie & Natuurherstel.

Voor de kust bij de Tweede Maasvlakte willen we een opslagbekken van 20 km2, het zogenaamde Energie-opslagmeer bouwen. Dit Energie-opslagmeer met voldoende pompcapaciteit is zowel een batterij als een manier om overtollige water met grote kracht weg te pompen. Door het unieke ontwerp van het Energie-opslagmeer herstellen we ook de natuur en de vismigratie in het Haringvliet.

Koninklijke NLingenieurs zet zich in voor het bevorderen van onderscheidend ondernemen in de branche: een competitieve markt met vrije concurrentie, waarbij kwaliteit leidend is in de keuze voor een bureau.

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management is committed to improving quality of life, access and mobility in a clean, safe and sustainable environment. The Ministry strives to create an efficient network of roads, railways, waterways and airways, effective water management to protect against flooding, and improved air and water quality.

In order to increase exposure and facilitate market introduction of Dutch water and technology sector innovations, educational and research institutes have joined forces with (local) authorities and entrepreneurs in the region of Zuid-Holland to create the Valorisation Programme Delta Technology & Water (VPdelta). The programme is currently in its second phase (2016 -2019).
