Amsterdam Smart City is...


What is ASC?

Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) is the innovation platform of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. It challenges businesses, residents, the municipality and knowledge institutions to suggest and apply innovative ideas & solutions for urban issues. Since 2009 Amsterdam Smart City has grown into a platform comprising of in excess of 100 partners, who are actively involved in more than 77 innovative projects.

Why is this important?

ASC believes in a liveable city where people can live and work pleasantly. Amsterdam Smart City connects parties in order to enable the creation of smart collaborations and solutions. This contributes to the liveability of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, promotes sustainable economic growth and helps develop new markets.

How can you contribute?

Amsterdam Smart City is keen to work closely with city residents and visitors of Amsterdam to develop ideas and solutions aimed at improving the liveability of the city. After all, they know what they like, what does (and doesn’t) work and how they envisage the future for their own house, their street, neighbourhood, and perhaps even the entire city. If you’ve got an idea or solution, we’d love to hear it!
