We run a variety of activities to enable our members to exchange knowledge and collaborate internationally.

We would like our visitors to get the best possible experience when visiting our website. Therefore, we recommend opening this website in another browser (Chrome, Safari, Edge) for optimum responsiveness and user experience. Microsoft is not going to support Internet Explorer in the future and therefore some of our functionalities may not work.
During an international peer review, members visit another barrier as a peer to observe operations, review documents and interview their counterparts, to understand all aspects of barrier management. The purpose of a peer review is to identify areas of best practices and areas for improvement. Depending on the requirements of the host barrier, there are several types of peer reviews. From a 10 day in-depth review with a full team, to a (technical) document review lasting a few days or even a half a day.
The knowledge and experience peers gain is invaluable, as it can stimulate new ways of thinking that can be applied at their ‘home’ barrier or organisation. Furthermore, these reviews provide peers with a unique personal development opportunity. Peer reviews enable participants to build long lasting relationships with their international counterparts, which also assists future collaboration.
In addition to these initiatives and activities, we also facilitate technical site visits, workshops and knowledge exchange meetings on specific subjects between members on request, whenever this is practical. Furthermore, we are continuously building relationships with organisations around the world who own or have an interest in storm surge barriers to strengthen the network.
