Gerard Blom - CHAIR

I studied environmental sciences at Wageningen University and specialized in water quality management. From 1986-1997 I worked at Wageningen University as an associate professor in water quality management. My research topic was modelling sediment transport and light conditions in shallow lakes. From 1997-2010 I worked at Rijkswaterstaat and was involved in policy and planning studies on Room for the River. In 2003 I became manager of the river department of Rijkswaterstaat - RIZA; later of the knowledge management department of Rijkswaterstaaat - Water Management Centre. Scince 2010 I work at Deltares, a research institute on Delta Technology. I am unitmanager at the Deltares Software Centre and leading the research theme Environmental Sciences and Ecotechnology.

Johan Feenstra

I started my study molecular sciences at Wageningen University (WU) in 1975. During my study I was a student member of the education committee molecular sciences, the WU faculty council and the WU faculty board, striving for better interactions between the study programmes and societal problems. I was appointed as policy staff member on higher education and research at WU in 1981 and therefore I didn't complete my study. I am one of the initiators of the WIMEK Graduate School (Wageningen Institute for Environment and Climate Research), which was founded in 1993 to coordinate the research activities and PhD education of the Wageningen University chair groups involved in this research field. WIMEK actively participates in the Dutch inter-university network of environmental research groups: the Research School of the Socio-Economic and Natural Sciences of the Environment (SENSE). Currently, I am still the executive secretary of the WIMEK Graduate School and policy advisor of the SENSE Research School.

Caroline Moermond

I studied Environmental Sciences at Wageningen University with water quality management as a specialization. After my MSc, I worked at the department of Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management as a research and teaching assistant for 1.5 years, after which I started my PhD at the same department. I defended my thesis on modelling and measuring bioaccumulation in 2007. From 2006 until now I've been working at the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), first as an environmental risk assessor and now as a senior policy advisor. I mainly work on pharmaceuticals and other water contaminants. I'm the Dutch representative in two working parties at the European Medicines Agency.

I studied environmental sciences at Wageningen University and specialized in water quality management, before that I got a master in biochemistry. ). During my studies I did courses in Venezuela, Brussels and at Freshwater Biological Association in Windemere with an article in Nature as result. I have had a varied career, where I have worked twice in business (Campina Melkunie and Akzo Nobel), in addition to the University of Wageningen and the municipality of Almere and the province of Noord-Brabant. Respectively as a researcher at toxicology, head of the public cleansing and head of the surface-water department of the province. I started working in the province in 1996 and after having worked as head of surface-water department, I have been a leader of the biodiversity program, the climate program and finished my career as a consultant in management changes and Innovation. I was then also the official tractor of the B5 ( 5 biggest cities and the province in Brabant) , where the whole environment from traffic flows to air quality and energy-neutral living was part of that the program . Now I am retired and on board of the Waterschap Vallei en Veluwe as a member of the General Water Board Party (AWP)

Aktief Slip

Aktief Slip is the study association of Environmental Sciences from the Wageningen University. So most members of the Kennisnetwerk Milieu will probably have joined Aktief Slip during their study. Aktief Slip is represented by two members in the board of KNM; the President and the Secretary of Aktief Slip. These members change twice a year.
