NCK Days 2022
The NCK days in the Grolsch Veste stadium were a great success! The University of Twente hosted the 30th edition of the NCK days with 3 international keynotes, over 30 oral presentations and more than 40 posters. Over 150 participants enjoyed this first real-life conference in a long time. A special mention goes to Vera van Bergeijk (UT, now Deltares) for winning the Best Presentation award and to Tjitske Kooistra (NIOZ) for winning the Best Poster award.

The NCK days 2022 are going live! It’s short notice, but with the latest developments we are now happy to inform you that the NCK days 2022 will take place on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 March in the Grolsch Veste stadium in Enschede*. On Wednesday 16 March we organize a full-day excursion to the Waterloopbos and Schokland. On Wednesday evening, we organize an ice-breaker at Stanislaus Brewskovitch in the city centre of Enschede. More information on the program, the ice-breaker and the fieldtrip can be found below. Moreover, this is the 30th anniversary of the NCK Days and with the help of many sponsors we are looking forward to a special event reminiscing the past and exploring the future. With the recently published IPCC assessment report in mind and with an eye on our future in the Netherlands, the theme of the NCK Days 2022 is “Coastal Adaptation to Climate Change: Fight or Flight?”.
*Given the latest Covid regulations, there will be no entry requirements or other restrictions. The venue is very spacious and allows for distancing.

Excursion Waterloopbos & Schokland
On Wednesday we will visit two exciting locations that give an insight in the history of the NCK and the water engineering practice in the Netherlands in general.
The first part of the excursion will be at the ‘Waterloopbos’. This was the famous open air laboratory, in which WL | Delft Hydraulics have developed and tested many different hydraulic structures, such as the Delta works. After a delicious lunch (included), a guided tour by former employees of the laboratory will show us all the old scale models in the forest.
The tour starts around 10:00am at the NS station Zwolle, where you will be picked up. After the tour we will drive directly towards Enschede. We aim to be in Enschede well on time for dinner, and the icebreaker.
The second stop will be at the Schokland World Heritage site, which is an former island in the middle of the Noordoostpolder. A guided tour will show us the geological, archaeological and ecological remnants of the former island.
We’re looking forward to meeting you all in real life again in Enschede!
