A Delta Expertise Centre will be built in the Dutch province of Zeeland, focusing on water, energy and food. A combined approach to these elements is already standard in this part of the country, and a key starting point for the further development of Dutch expertise in this field.
To this end, various knowledge institutions based in the province (secondary vocational school Scalda, HZ University of Applied Sciences, University College Roosevelt and Wageningen Marine Research) have entered into a partnership with Wageningen University and Utrecht University. Central government is providing additional resources to support development of this expertise and the Kenniswerf complex.
More information about these plans can be found in the Dutch government news item.
