Most of the world population live in deltas, coastal regions and river basins. Managing these densely populated and vulnerable areas is complex. With Enabling Delta Life as our motto, we closely collaborate governments, businesses, other research institutes and universities in The Netherlands and all over the world to work on smart solutions, innovations and applications for people, environment and society on these areas. As an applied research institute, the success of Deltares can be measured in the extent to which our expert knowledge can be used in and for society. For Deltares, the quality of our expertise and advice comes first. Over 800 people work at Deltares. With our projects, we aim at contributing to the creation, and consolidation of knowledge. We also believe that it is essential to share this knowledge to everyone, by for example making our software freely available. During our presentation, we will illustrate some of these activities and projects at Deltares, with special emphasis on topics related to mathematical modelling and software development, by using one of our most recent software solutions: “Riskeer." This application is an example of how scientific research meets software development, in this case, to maintain the water defense network of The Netherlands safe now and in the future.
