Stichting IJkdijk is formed by Deltares, NV NOM, STOWA, TNO, the Dutch business community and Sensor Universe (formerly the IDL foundation).

The idea of looking into whether sensors could be used for dike monitoring together with Waterschap Hunze en Aa’s came about in at the beginning of 2005. The initiators involved other parties in the project, which eventually led to the formation of Stiching IJkdijk. The chemistry between the participating parties was good. There were also parties on the demand side – the water barrier managers – who supported this development. The LiveDijken are the best example of this.


The development programme of Stichting IJkdijk is funded by the  Ministry of Economics, Agriculture and Innovation, the Ministry of Infrastructure and EnvironmentSamenwerkingsverband Noord Nederland, the Province of Groningen,  water barrier managers, STOWA and the affiliated companies under them. The Stichting has also worked in close partnership with Stichting Flood Control 2015UrbanFloodWaterschap Hunze en Aa’s (IJkdijk test location), Staatsbosbeheer and has been a good consultative partner with the Municipalities of Bellingwedde Bellingwedde and Old Ambt.
