WhatsApp Image 2024 03 15 at 13.26.21It’s a wrap! After 3 wonderful days, the NCK Days 2024 have concluded successfully. 158 coastal enthusiasts from across different organisations, with diverse backgrounds and years of experience gathered in Amersfoort for the annual NCK Days. This year’s theme was ‘Innovative science for a resilient coast’.

The event started on Wednesday with a full-day fieldtrip to the Marker Wadden. In the evening there was an icebreaker at the city brewery de Drie Ringen so that all participants could get to know each other.

For the following two days a very nice program was put together: 35 speakers gave presentations about sand waves, coasts, estuarine hydrodynamics and morphodynamics, dunes, coastal ecology, and nature-based solutions. All presentations were very interesting, and speakers varied from old hands to very young master students. Sem Geerts & Bart van Westen took home the award for the Best Presentation. Moreover, there were 37 posters to behold, accompanied by a short pitch. Congratulations to Wout Ploeg & Floris van Rees for winning the Best Poster award!

Traditionally, the conference dinner took place on Thursday evening. The recently founded Young-NCK tested our (non-)coastal related knowledge by hosting a pub quiz. The table of O-NCK walked away with the prize (and the O doesn't stand for Young...).

The NCK Days were a big success! Thank you to this year’s organisers from IHE Delft: Khin Nawarat, Natascia Pannozzo (TU Delft), Trang Duong, Johan Reyns, Mick van der Wegen, Dano Roelvink, and Niamh McKenna.

Mark your calendars for 19, 20, and 21 March 2025 for next year’s #NCKdays!
