Urbanising Deltas of the World organises Roadshows

12 November 2014

In the last week of November, Urbanising Deltas of the World (UDW) will organise three roadshows to discuss the Second Call for Proposals that will be launched in December. This call will fund research & innovation projects focused on business challenges in deltas in developing countries. The roadshows are meant to create synergies between the private sector parties and research organisations. Based on identified needs, UDW will propose further steps in matchmaking for those interested.

The roadshows are not only open for parties that have expressed their interest by a formal EoI, but also for newly interested parties. Especially private sector parties are invited to join. The following meetings wil take place:

1) Water, Food & Energy Security and Efficiency 24 November 2014, from 15.00-17.00 hrs at Waag Society in Amsterdam.

2) Maritime infrastructure, transport and spatial planning 25 November 2014, from 15.00-17.00 hrs at RDM Campus in Rotterdam.

3) Water Safety, urban planning, disaster risk reduction 26 November 2014, from 14.00-16.00 hrs at YES!Delft in Delft.

There will be drinks after each roadshow, where you can pose questions to NWO or get to know potential research partners.
