Abstract
    The Scheldt InformationCenter acts as an information platform for the estuary of the River Scheldt. This center is active in The Netherlands and in Flanders. Its area of interest concerns the tide-related part of the River Scheldt, i.e. from Ghent (B) to the mouth in Vlissingen (NL). The main task of the Scheldt InformationCenter is putting information about the estuary area at the disposal of everybody interested in the subject. Additionally, the institute acts as a contact point. The Scheldt InformationCenter coordinates (with or without cooperation of other institutes) Scheldt-related projects. In all activities, the different functions of the estuary, safety, policy and management are central issues. By informing everybody about the River Scheldt, the institute hopes to enlarge the involvement and public awareness of this estuary, a river so important for the delta-area in the South-West of The Netherlands as well as for Flanders, Belgium.
