Worldwide, Deltares works on smart solutions, innovations, and applications for people, environment and society. Its focus is on deltas, coastal regions, and river basins. Managing these densely populated areas is complex, which is why it works closely with governments, businesses, other research institutes and universities.

Deltares supplies answers to social issues by combining technical expertise with an understanding of political, administrative, and economic processes. As an independent, not-for-profit knowledge institute for applied research in the field of water and subsurface Deltares is convinced that sharing knowledge benefits everybody’s innovative potential.The interdisciplinary approach, Deltares’ independent position, and its role as an authority with a reputation for integrity means the team can contribute to a science based societal dialogue. The integrated approach allows them to come up with innovative solutions. For decision-making under deep uncertainty, Deltares has developed the dynamic adaptive policy pathways (DAPP) approach that will be extended in MYRIAD-EU.
