About us

Team & Partners

The Rich North Sea consists of a team of dedicated professionals. The steering committee (with the directors of Natuur & Milieu and The North Sea Foundation) manages the program director. The program director directs the pilots and connects them with the steering group. The pilots each have their own project manager and also consist of representatives from the field: wind farm owners, scientists and ecologists, among others.
