The Wageningen University Executive Board has appointed Ton Hoitink as professor holding a personal chair in Environmental Fluid Mechanics at the Hydrology and Quantitative Water Management group led by Remko Uijlenhoet. He will occupy this position as of 1 June. Hoitink will focus his research and teaching efforts on flow processes and river bed changes in deltas using new monitoring methods based on acoustic, optical and radar measurements.
A better understanding of delta flow processes is needed in order to develop environmentally friendly interventions that can help us counteract the effects of climate change
We are now in the third of six-years program (2014-2019). This edition share tips from our experiences in working with scientific and professional communities. The goal is to get the knowledge into the work-practices of the users.

Are you working on river flooding, coastal dynamics, land subsidence, salt water intrusion, livelihoods, governance or environmental law? All these topics are important for the sustainable management of coastal river deltas worldwide. Utrecht University is offering a 5 day interdisciplinary training coarse focussing on four Delta themes: land subsidence, flooding, salt water intrusion and urbanisation. The course inclused lectures, group sessions and excursions. For more information, see the flyer!
In 2018, NCR will celebrate its 20th anniversary. And it has been quite a ride! We would like to kick-off the next 20 years with a new logo representing the full breadth of River research in The Netherlands: from excellent mono-disciplinary research to ground breaking multidisciplinary research programmes. Therefore, we call a contest to design the new NCR logo! You have until June 30th to send us your design. The winner will gain free access to the NCR DAYS 2018 conference in Delft. Please find the rules below. Happy designing!

Deltares voert voor Rijkswaterstaat jaarlijks rivierkundig onderzoek uit. Er vinden verschillende deelonderzoeken plaats, die worden gestuurd door de praktijk. Het doel van het onderzoek is dat er binnen 3 jaar een praktische oplossing toepasbaar is waarmee actuele of te verwachten problemen kunnen worden opgelost. In de vorm van een nieuwsbrief is een overzicht gegeven van de activiteiten die in 2016 zijn en worden uitgevoerd en zijn enkele aansprekende resultaten beschreven.
Alle versies van de nieuwsbrief zijn terug te vinden op de pagina van NCR partner Deltares.
