Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is one of the founding partners of AMS Institute. Together with Wageningen University & Research and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Delft University of Technology forms the academic heart of AMS Institute. TU Delft truly appreciates the collaboration within AMS Institute, most importantly this collaboration ensures that scientific research reaches the market much faster than it normally would. "AMS Institute combines speed with fundamental expertise, which allows to carry out tests and implementations quickly," says Arjan van Timmeren, Scientific Director AMS Institute.

“Finding metropolitan solutions is typical engineering work. To solve urban problems, we need to be in the city ourselves”

Project

Future-proof historic quay walls

Climate Resilient Cities

Investigating the state of Amsterdam's historic quays and bridges to keep the city safe, accessible and ‘future-proof’.

Project

Prospecting Urban Mines of Amsterdam

Circularity in Urban Regions

Amsterdam as a built environment can be seen as an urban mine. Metals are potentially available in built structures. This 2016 collaborative research project yielded an interactive map and plan prospecting our city, rethinking traditional mining.

Project

3D Printing in the Circular City

Circularity in Urban Regions

Closing the loop of plastic waste flows by using large-scale 3D printing for recycling plastic waste

Project

Circular Components in Built Environment

Circularity in Urban Regions

Creating a circular economy (CE) in the built environment is one of today’s biggest societal challenges. In this project the proofs of principle for a Circular Kitchen and a Circular Plug-and-play Central Heating Boiler were developed and tested.

Project

REPAiR

Circularity in Urban Regions

The REPAiR project helps local and regional authorities to reduce waste flow in 6 peri-urban European areas.

Project

Roboat

Smart Urban Mobility

Amsterdam gets world’s first fleet of autonomous boats.

FABULOUS

Circularity in Urban Regions

Fruit-, vegetable and other organic waste is currently often converted to yield compost and low-value biogas. The goal of FABULOUS is to optimize a novel process to convert organic waste into high-value chemical building blocks.
