To meet the objectives an interdisciplinary partnership is set up, bringing together geologists (UG-RCMG/TNO/RBINS), physical modellers (RBINS) and IT professionals (UG-DDCM), from governmental organizations and academia. Such a pluriform consortium is regarded essential to develop effective resource decision support systems (DSS) that can cope with data imperfections and uncertainties and that are driven by real-world requirements. Four work packages (WP) are defined that logically work toward the decision support system: (1) Data, Information to Knowledge (UG-RCMG); (2) 3D Geological Models (TNO); (3) 4D Process Models (RBINS); and (4) Scenario Analyses and Predictions (UG-DDCM).
