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

Bio-receptive concrete

Climate Resilient Cities

To develop a climate-proof and livable environment we need to integrate more green in the design of cities. Concrete is a common building material in cities and for this purpose a bio-receptive concrete is developed and tested at Marineterrein Amsterdam.

Project

CINDERELA - living lab

Circularity in Urban Regions

In a circular society, we aim to close waste streams in order to keep valuable resources in the loop. One of these resource-rich waste streams is wastewater. CINDERELA transforms urine from wastewater into a nutrient-rich fertilizer.

Project

PV Advent Calendar

Urban Energy

Assessing the real PV potential on Amsterdam roof-tops and challenges involved considering local grid infrastructure

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

Solar Urban

Urban Energy

To reach the city's climate ambitions, we have to generate more energy within the city itself. This can be done for example by using solar panels that are placed on roofs. But what about other surfaces, such as facades, roads, and pavements?

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.
