AMS Institute is an internationally leading institute where talent is educated and engineers, designers, and both natural and social scientists jointly develop and valorise integrated metropolitan solutions. The mission of AMS Institute is to develop a deep understanding of the city – sense the city – to design solutions for its challenges, and integrate these into the city of Amsterdam. This is done through three main activities: education, research & valorisation, and data.
Amsterdam Municipality as initiator and its partners share metropolitan data, and researchers can use Amsterdam as a 'Living Lab'. Among the partners in AMS Institute are Amsterdam Smart City, Boston Municipality, Alliander, ESA, IBM, Shell, AEB, Deltares, Amsterdam Harbour and Waternet.
Together with Delft University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Wageningen University & Research is the academic heart of AMS Institute. We closely collaborate on research assignments, education opportunities and establishing a data platform.
