Lecture of Pernille van der Plank

On the 26th of April 2024, Pernille van der Plank (Taskleader within Floating Future) delivered her inaugural lecture as Professor of Property Law at the Open Universiteit. The theme was particularly fascinating and relevant, namely: “Water lease as water law: On the private law right to water plots”. This is perhaps the subject that has the most misunderstanding within the floating construction sector. Pernille explains in a crystal-clear speech how it works, read her inaugural lecture here and view the press release
The legal aspects of floating construction also play an important role in the Floating Research Project. In the coming years, PhD researcher Eefke Huisman will conduct further research here under the supervision of Pernille. Do you want to stay informed about the progress of Floating Future?
