On april 15th 2013 a letter of intent was signed by ir. D. Schmidt (TNO, Managing Director Built Environment) and ir. E. Janse (Deltares, Director).

Examples of topics on which TNO en Deltares will be working together: exchange of probabilistic tools, sustainable delta cities, infrastructure asset management.
