Institute full name:

Research Institute for Knowledge Systems

Institute acronym:

RIKS

Institute profile:

The Research Institute for Knowledge Systems has over the last 25 years developed itself into both a leading research centre and real-world solution provider in the fields of land use change, model integration and decision support systems. RIKS does applied research for public and private parties worldwide, including the European Commission, the Dutch and Puerto Rican national governments, various local New Zealand government bodies and the Australian Bush Fire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre. To facilitate its research on model integration, RIKS has developed the Geonamica software platform. RIKS supports planners and policy-makers in spatially explicit scenario development with scientific knowledge and with its generic land use modelling framework Metronamica, which is used by numerous administrations and researchers worldwide. RIKS has coordinated and participated in several FP projects including LUMOCAP, DeSurvey, PLUREL, MedAction, TiGrESS and MODULUS.
