AMS Science for the City
Together with Pakhuis de Zwijger we organise a series on metropolitan development and innovation. How can big data, prototyping, 3D-printing and scientific innovation help to solve the complex challenges that the metropole Amsterdam faces? Upcoming and established (inter)national urban professionals from AMS and its academic partners (TU Delft, Wageningen University, MIT) will introduce us to the newest research and practical solutions within urban themes as water, energy, waste, food, data and mobility.
