DOKHAVEN - Research, Design & Manufacturing
Within the area between the Beneluxtunnel and the Erasmus bridge the Stadshavens of Rotterdam are situated. The rdm-terrain is one of the four subareas belonging to the Stadshavens. On the terrain you perceive a junction between living, working and innovation. Knowing this we can speak of a wide variety of needs. There is a lot happening at the rdm-terrain which is related to innovation and state of the art technologies. But when you analyse the area there's almost no space where people connect and stimulate the sharing of knowledge and cooperation. To solve this problem I want to add the DOK_Expo_2.0
DOK Expo is about the joint innovation power of the whole Dutch water sector, thinking of water technology, delta technology and the maritime sector. De exposition is a visit card and a showcase where the national as well as the international successes and possibilities of our water sector are showed together.
There is a permanent expo, a showcase and business centre for the water-, delta- and maritime technology, a place from where visits can be made to important innovative waterprojects in the Netherlands where the RDM terrain is one. In short a showcase which can be employed through the whole Dutch water sector.
Functions of the DOK_Expo_2.0
