The port of Rotterdam is home to the ideal experimental environment for floating architecture and urban development on water. Aqua Dock, an initiative of Rotterdam municipal council, the Port of Rotterdam Authority and the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, is putting water plots ready for construction at the disposal of entrepreneurs and researchers. Here they can work on water-based solutions for delta cities, from floating farms to hotels. Aqua Dock also welcomes innovators from the maritime sector who work with floating constructions. Aqua Dock is part of the RDM Rotterdam campus where technical education, knowledge development and entrepreneurship complement each other. It is a launching pad for bright young engineers preparing to take part in the search for ways to make port areas and delta cities sustainable and climate proof.
VPdelta supports many start-ups and grownups working on the development of promising innovations. Click here to find out more about the start-ups involved.
