Antea Group Antea Group combines strategic thinking, multidisciplinary and technical expertise and pragmatic actions. We will challenge you to work on the casus Port of Amsterdam as the biggest transformation of Europe. This casus has many risks and insecurities. Also other characteristics like landownership makes this issue more complex. The municipality of Amsterdam does not have much landownership and the city grows organic on a large scale. Our monitoringplan, an adaptive system, is used to tackle these insecurity and contribute to this transformation of the Port of Amsterdam. We challenge you to think about these many risk and insecurities. Find us at


Over Morgen Over Morgen focusses on people, is creative, realistc and works with sustainable solutions. During their workshop they provide a case on Zandzoom. They will tackle a spatial problem with a new approach concerning riskmanagement and development. This approach is in line with the new law, ‘Omgevingswet’. This bottum-up approach will be simulated during the workshop, an interesting way to learn how Over Morgen tackles riskmanagement and uncertainties in their projects. Find us at


RHDHV/SAC In the workshop rounds, Royal HaskoningDHV and the SAC Groningen will host a risk management game together. Firstly, they will show you the relevance of risk management and give you an insight into the basic theories about risk management that both parties work with.

As risk managers, you will have to respond adequately to different kinds of risks involved in the project to complete the project of the Southern Ringroad successfully. Find us at and


Hastig At Hastig we are always looking for new questions in the field of traffic and transport that can be answered by data. One of these results will be presented on the Geo-promotion conference. It is well known – and unfortunately common sense – that traffic has it’s risks. By combining information about traffic accidents and traffic volume, based on floating car data, we can estimate the risk on several different road classes. This way it is possible to show for a certain area which roads are less safe than in other parts of the city. Find us as


GEON In September 2016, a regional initiative emerged in the region of Groningen, called Gegevensknooppunt Groningen (GKG). In this project organisations are working together to share geo-information across the public-, the private- and the public-private domain. This is an unique partnership between 22 organisations that connects regional- and national initiatives to solve societal, cross domain questions related to topical themes, such as energy transition and security. The variety of national and regional developments incorporated in GKG (e.g. new legislations and new technologies) allows officials, departments and organisations to take control in data management.

Simulation of a knowledge network: the risk of flooding in Groningen
The societal, cross domain questions that can be solved by sharing geospatial data between member organisations are determined by knowledge networks. Knowledge networks consist of meetings between different stakeholders, including data specialists and domain specialists of the regional data source owners, partners and other parties from the private sector. During this workshop you will experience first-hand how it is to participate in a knowledge network. The first part of the workshop includes a question analysis. During this part of the workshop you will collect the relevant user stories of different stakeholders. User stories are short descriptions that reflect on the needs of different user types. The second part of the workshop consists of a data analysis. Here, you will examine the available open data of member organisations and partners, and you will collect data that meets the user stories determined during the first part of this workshop.

Sign up for this workshop to experience the value of collaboration between different (level) organisations and learn how to use open data to answer societal, cross domain questions about the risk of flooding in the municipality of Groningen! Find us as
