Dieuwke Voorhoeve’s expertise is mainly in connecting people and valorising knowledge. In recent years, Dieuwke worked as a programme manager putting together the DPWE programme. That is the dune water companies’ research programme. The programme’s workshops which she organised four times a year fed back the knowledge developed within the programme to the companies. Dieuwke also used her organisation skills, overview and knowledge of the network for the water companies’ (BTO’s) collective research programme. She organised various trips for the CEOs of the water sector, put together countless conferences and organised custom workshops at companies highlighting the added value of the research for the companies. As process supervisor, with years of experience Dieuwke creatively brings people together and works with them to get to the centre of things. In addition to for the CoP water sector, she also does that for internal issues at water companies and district water boards.
