The Knowledge Platform is financed by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations. The University of Groningen, Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen, CMO-STAMM/Social Planning Bureau Groningen and GGD Groningen have jointly established the Knowledge Platform.

The office, housed at the University of Groningen (coordinating institution), is the organizing force of the Knowledge Platform. The office facilitates knowledge transfer and the network, connecting stakeholders and involved researchers.

Advisory group


The advisory group is consulted on substantive issues and contributes ideas concerning the activities of the Knowledge Platform.

We are currently putting together a sounding board group.


We actively collaborate with other parties. Are you interested in collaborating with us? Feel free to contact us. 

We work together with the Knowledge Platform Building. The aim of this platform is to stimulate knowledge building and sharing about future-proof construction and reinforcement and to make knowledge about earthquake problems accessible to everyone.
