Dutch term or phrase: aansluiten bij
I'm writing a voice-over for a film for a science-programme in the Netherlands and need a translation of the term 'aansluiten bij'. The whole sentence is:

"In de de Zuidwestelijke Delta is er vanaf de start gekozen voor een intensieve samenwerking tussen overheden, kennisinstellingen en het bedrijfsleven, door aan te sluiten bij bestaande netwerken."

Explanation:
US? alternative:
through connecting with existing networks (or seeking connection with)

Ik verkies "connecting" voor "aansluiten" (contact leggen met) in plaats van "joining" existing networks omdat joining gevoelsmatig/mogelijk meer organisatie suggereert dan er in werkelijkheid is.
