Deltares is an independent institute for applied research in the field of surface water and aquifers. Throughout the world, we work on smart solutions, innovations and applications for people, the environment, and society.
From the perspective of water, the subsurface zones and infrastructure, we focus on four mission areas in which we set out our contributions to the international and Dutch agendas and tasks: Future deltas, Sustainable deltas, Safe deltas, and Resilient infrastructure.
Managing densely populated and vulnerable areas is complex, which is why we work closely with governments, businesses, other research institutes, universities, and NGOs at home and abroad.
All contracts and projects, whether financed privately or from strategic research budgets, contribute to the consolidation of our knowledge base. Furthermore, we believe in openness and transparency, as is evident from the open access availability of our software and models. Deltares is a non-profit organisation, employs 850 people from 42 different nationalities and is based in Delft and Utrecht.
