The Knowledge Platform is financed by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations. The University of Groningen, the 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 within its network, connecting different stakeholders and researchers in the field.

Steering committee

The steering committee is the strategic force behind the Knowledge Platform. The steering group is composed by representatives of the partner organizations of the Knowledge Platform Leefbaar and Kansrijk Groningen:

  • dr. Bert Wiersema, University of Groningen;

  • dr. Elles Bulder, Hanze University Groningen;

  • Roos Jelier, CMO-STAMM/Social Planning Office Groningen.

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.


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

We work together with 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.
