AMS Annual Report 2017

2017 was our third year of operations. Our drive is to educate talent and develop innovative metropolitan solutions for the city of Amsterdam and cities worldwide. In our annual report we summarize an overview of our 2017 activities.

With 81 research projects (of which 20 are finished), we addressed a growing range of topics focused around our three themes: Circular City, Connected City and Vital City. More details can be found in the Research & Valorization chapter of our Annual Report.

2017 was a flourishing year as well for our education program, with the successful launch in September of the MSc MADE, Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering, two Summer Schools and a tremendous participation in our MOOCs.

An other 2017 milestone was the publication of a guide on how to set up an urban living lab “Urban Living Labs – A Living Lab way of Working”. A way of working that facilitates the transition between fundamental research and society wide implementation. It demonstrates the need of such an in-between solution for metropolitan challenges.

All of this and more is featured in our Annual Report 2017.
