National Water and Climate Knowledge and Innovation Programme
Knowledge issues in which collaboration between knowledge institutes, governments, and the private sector is feasible and desirable have been accommodated in the National Water and Climate Knowledge and Innovation Programme (NKWK). In the past year, collaboration has got into its stride, in particular with respect to the themes of Coastal Genesis, Rivers, Climate-proof Cities, Smart Water Management, Markerwadden, models, water and energy, Lumbricus, and flood protection. The NKWK parties are in touch with the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) regarding a new call for “living labs in the delta” in 2018. The annual NKWK conference was held on 11 April 2017.
