NEDERLANDSE KUSTLIJN STARTUP CHALLENGE

Rijkswaterstaat is looking for innovations to optimize their current coastal maintenance process. This will be necessary as it is expected that the routine will become more extensive and complex in the future due to the rising sea-level. Rijkswaterstaat is looking for Dutch-speaking startups and innovators to take part in this challenge. Should you be unable to comply, we kindly ask you to not register as a participant.

Rijkswaterstaat aims every day towards making the Netherlands safe, liveable and accessible. The organisation aims for a country with sufficient green areas, clean water, where everyone can move quickly and safely from A to B, and that is safe from floods. Protection against flooding is and will remain of vital importance. Rijkswaterstaat maintains 2.500 km of dikes, dams, weirs and storm surge barriers to protect the coast.

Part of this maintenance is adding sand to the coast, which Rijkswaterstaat has been doing for many years. This is necessary, because sand erodes from the coastline every day. To maintain the Dutch coastline, ships take the sand from designated sand pits, away from the coast and bring this back to the shore and beaches. Although this routine does its work, the process will become more extensive and complex in the future because of rising sea levels. In addition, Rijkswaterstaat aims to substantially decrease the emissions of greenhouse gasses towards zero in 2030. This means that Rijkswaterstaat is looking for other ways to make this process more sustainable and cost-effective. That’s what this Nederlandse Kustlijn Startup Challenge is all about. 

THE CHALLENGE

Rijkswaterstaat is looking for the latest innovations that can be applied to substantially decrease greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the coastal maintenance activities in a cost effective way. Within the Nederlandse Kustlijn Startup Challenge, however, innovation is not the goal but the means to achieve this ambition.

By 2024 Rijkswaterstaat aims to introduce one or more sustainable solutions, for coastal maintenance that are as cost-effective as possible. These are innovative solutions that can only be achieved with additional research and development, and which are therefore not yet available. These solutions must lead to a significant reduction in greenhouse gases, as Rijkswaterstaat’s ultimate aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for regular coastal maintenance towards zero in 2030 by the latest.

SHARE YOUR INNOVATION

Rijkwaterstaat is giving startups the opportunity to come up with new ideas, technologies and applications, and to develop them in partnership. After successful development, Rijkswaterstaat will apply the solution in practice. The focus for these solutions is on those in which sand is added to the Dutch coast. In the long term this enables the coastal protection to grow with sea level rise. Do you think you have the solution to help Rijkswaterstaat achieve its ambitions? Then sign up for the challenge and get the chance to share your innovation with Rijkswaterstaat.

About EdTech Validation Program

EdTech is one of the fastest-growing industries with data-rich educational platforms being adopted more and more, and huge growth in investments. Three top universities, Delft University of Technology, Leiden University and Erasmus University believe in stimulating innovation by inspiring their employees by getting them in contact with EdTech startups. Incubators YES!Delft, PLNT Leiden and Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship want to combine the knowledge of the universities with an entrepreneurial mindset to help shape the educational system of the future.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT INNOVATION CHALLENGE

The MRDH is optimizing the public transportation facilities, which will be necessary as it is expected that the demand for public transport will grow. Together with RET and HTM, MRDH is searching for innovations that contribute to finding a solution for the current growth restriction, and that solves the bottlenecks in the public transport network during peak hours. YES!Delft is looking for startups that are offering an innovative, efficient and feasible solution for this challenge.

powered by 

The Metropolitan region of Rotterdam The Hague (MRHD) features public transportation facilities to be proud of. For the long haul, people are working hard to optimize these facilities. That will be necessary as it is expected that this region will expand with more than 400.000 residents in the upcoming decades, which automatically results in a growing demand for public transport. 

Agreements are already being made about an investment program for the public transportation with a horizon up to 2040. These agreements must ensure that the growth continues, customers are satisfied or become more satisfied, the region remains accessible to everyone and the agglomeration power of the region strengthens. At the same time, there are already a number of bottlenecks in the system, or places where new bottlenecks are likely to arise. MRDH, together with RET and HTM, are searching for innovations that contribute to finding a solution for the current growth restriction, and that solves the bottlenecks in the public transport network during peak hours.

A COLLABORATION WITH YES!DELFT

Throughout recent years, the MRDH has successfully collaborated with tech incubator YES!Delft. Together with Get in the Ring, a global network of support organisations, corporations and governments that want to make an impact, YES!Delft is responsible for scouting startups across Europe, who are offering an efficient and feasible solution for the challenge within the region.

The challenge is all about mapping out efficient and feasible solutions to reduce the strain within public transportation during peak hours. This is a necessary topic because public transportation facilities within the MRDH will expand, simply because the number of travellers come from an organic autonomous growth.

STARTUP SELECTION CRITERIA

The most important selection criteria of your startup is that your product needs to offer a solution that fits the challenge. Besides that, you startup needs:

  • A minimum of two co-founders;
  • To operate in the tech industry;
  • A completed prototype or MVP;
  • To be scalable, innovative and impactful;
  • To have someone who is able to speak either English or Dutch.

WHAT IS THERE TO WIN?

  • A pilot project together with MRDH, RET and HTM (the finalists will pilot their prototype(s) as soon as possible). If the pilot is  successful, the solution might be implemented.
  • 15K Y!D Credit for workshops, programs and masterclasses at YES!Delft
  • The finalists get access to the incubator, YES!Delft network, events and programs. (For some programs there might be a selection).
  • YES!Delft offers support in setting up pilots between the finalists and MRDH / RET / HTM

ABOUT INNOVATIEROUTE

The innOVatieroute is an initiative of HTM, RET and the MRDH. We challenge parties to find innovative solutions to the challenges of tomorrow’s public transport. We are looking for new ideas for sustainability, cost efficiency, or better travel experiences for our regional public transport. How can we make better use of trams, buses, and subways? How do we make our facilities more attractive? What is a better way to deal smarter with management and maintenance?

The InnOVatieroute organizes specific requests, where startups and other interested parties can register to. The best solutions are guided, and are given the opportunity to start a pilot at the public transport companies HTM and/or RET. For the first request, we are looking for innovative ideas and solutions for the bottlenecks in the public transport network during peak hours.
