About City of Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a small metropolis with great ambitions. The city is a 'living lab', in which metropolitan tasks are both a challenge and an opportunity to develop and apply new insights, technologies and practices. Knowledge and innovation go hand in hand: gathering, reflecting and researching knowledge form the context within which new applications can be developed. The City of Amsterdam believes that a responsible capital invests in knowledge and innovation and continues to develop in this area. The partnership with AMS Institute helps us achieve this goal.

About AMS Institute
AMS Institute is a public-private institute founded in 2014 by WUR and TUD, together with MIT. We believe that by generating ideas, talent, and collaborations, and closely interacting with cities as we know them today, we can help analyze, design and engineer solutions for the cities of the future. Cities that are more sustainable, prosperous, resilient, and just. We call this: re-inventing cities.


Our ambition is to create sustainable metropolitan solutions by realizing a cross-fertilization of ideas: in our research, innovation and educational activities. By creating an innovative environment where connections are made between knowledge institutes, private and public organizations.

As such AMS Institute is uniquely positioned to connect science to societal challenges, and solving those together

Academic backbone
AMS Institute was founded in 2014 by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
