Green light for CASTOR project
We are very pleased to announce that the CASTOR project received a NWA-ORC grant of 1.9 million euro. This means green light for this project as well. CASTOR is all about the sandy-soil landscapes of the east and south Netherlands. These have a wide range of agricultural, recreational and natural functions and are at risk with climate change. Using a living lab approach, the CASTOR project identifies climate-robust landscapes for the future, and together with government and societal partners they design pathways towards these.

Living dikes will come alive
We are very pleased to announce that Bas Borsje, Associate Professor Nature-based Flood Protection, received a NWA-ORC grant of 1.9 million euro to start working on the Living Dikes project. Living dikes are a promising way to climate‐proof our coast. These dikes consist of a soft foreland and a green dike, thereby slowing down the waves and reducing the wave load on the dikes. This research facilitates the construction of living dikes by weighing interests, testing living dikes under extreme conditions and formulating design rules to be applied by end‐users.
