The Netherlands is a densely populated delta below sea level. We were forced to find solutions to protect us against water and to live safely below sea level. Over centuries, the Dutch have developed extensive knowledge and experience in both water management and water technology. We have therefore become a major global player in water defence and water purification. The TopDutch region has the cleanest drinking water in the world.
The TopDutch region is home for the Water Campus with the Dutch Water Alliance, Wetsus; the Dutch Centre of Expertise Water Technology, the application centre and, last but not least, a vibrant international community of water technology companies. We are the world’s WaterTech Hub, dedicated to water technology and innovation with wide support from companies, universities and government.
Our companies and researchers work in synergy on solutions for sustainable water supply, drinking-, process- and waste water treatment, sensoring micro and nano pollutants, energy production and new water sources. The TopDutch Water Industry makes the world a safe place to live, by protection against flooding and providing new and safe water to drink and to grow our crops.
The TopDutch region collaborates on water technology with seventeen European universities. We invest in the availability of highly skilled talent, office facilities, shared lab, test and demo facilities, a major network, collaboration opportunities and access to the European market.
We are the smart choice for locating your European Water Technology headquarters and R&D facilities. We are proud to protect the world from water and to provide the world with safe drinking water, via companies such as Paques, Spaans Babcock, Landustrie, Hubert, Capilix, Aquana, Biotrack, LSF and many others.
There is no other region in the world as dedicated to water technology and with such top-level research, innovation and companies. New knowledge and technologies are developed and commercialized here. We invest in keeping the world safe together, and provide the world with safe drinking water. We are TopDutch.
