NWO Matchmaking Event
The New Planning

Dear {AANHEF},


Vereniging Deltametropool and TU Delft is developing a research project "The New Planning" focusing on the urgencies and the new approaches that are needed in Dutch spatial planning. To enlarge our consortia for this new research project we gladly invite you to join the matchmaking event on 1st November 2018.


The Project

A Consortium of academic, civil society, government and market sectors has been created to meet the urgent need for a new model of strategic spatial planning that will keep the Netherlands at the forefront of territorial governance. Our argument for this research is that a fundamental breakthrough is needed to completely recast the spatial planning system to fit totally transformed social, economic and cultural conditions, and meet critical interconnected societal challenges.

NWO Matchmaking

The scope of the project falls under NWO routes related to the planning system and we are in process to make an application for the NWO-NWA-ORC. With the financial support from NWO, we are organising the first matchmaking event for the project. We invite all the related organisations and individuals to attend the matchmaking event and we look forward to new collaborations.



We have initiated discussion about this project with some organisations who are directly related with the planning system of the Netherlands. De Nationale Omgevingsvisie (NOVI), Provincie Gelderland, Provincie Noord Holland, Gemeente Den Haag, Gemeente Rotterdam, University of Groningen, Rijkswaterstaat and Arcadis have already showed interest to involve themselves in this project. We are taking this opportunity at the matchmaking event to make further collaborations in support of The New Planning.
