On Thursday April 18th, we invite you to join us for the official opening of the exhibition of their Living Lab products. Experience the learning outcomes of the student Living Labs in real-life and get ready to be inspired!

About the MSc MADE Living Lab

The Living Lab course is part of the MSc MADE graduation year. During this course, the students are connected to partners in the AMS Institute network – or in some cases even create new connections - allowing them to gain Living Lab experience in a real-life setting. Spread on cases all over the city, the students work on urban challenges, tinkering with all types of (practical) solutions together with different types of stakeholders. From wastewater composites to innovative lighting structures, and from roadmaps in the energy transition to citizen engagement for bulk waste strategies, through these experiences MADE students learn to adopt a living lab way of working.

MSc MADE

The MSc MADE aims to educate urban engineers that are equipped to deal with the metropolitan challenges of our cities. In its interdisciplinary courses, students attain skills and knowledge by testing their ideas in projects and living labs in Amsterdam.

Living Labs

To create metropolitan solutions with impact that will be adopted smoothly and swiftly by all involved, urban living labs can provide a co-innovating setting for its stakeholders and a valuable context to test, (re-)shape and valorize innovation.
