Interviews for graduate research: SMEs active in Smart Building

Dear members of the Amsterdam Smart City community,

I am currently in my final year of the bachelor study Industrial Engineering at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, and I am having my 6-months internship at Amsterdam Trade, who collaborates with Amsterdam Smart City in the area of internationalization. During this 6-months internship, I am doing my graduate research and thesis on innovation failure in the context of Smart City, more specifically SMEs specialized in Smart Building solutions, and internationalization. Right now in the third week of my research, and in this phase, I want to conduct interviews with people working in SMEs that are specialized in Smart Building solutions (both indoor and/or outdoor) that could give me insights in the key topics of my research: internationalization, innovation failure (in this case specified to innovation processes) and SMEs.

What will be the end result of this research? An innovation process specifically designed for SMEs when they want to offer their innovations on foreign markets. This could help and accelerate Amsterdam Trade in the internationalization process of SMEs. And ultimately, what's the added value for SMEs? This innovation process is designed through practical cases (interviews) and literary research on innovation processes and internationalization. It should help SMEs in setting up and shaping their innovation process for internationalization purposes: from exploring multiple ideas to selecting one idea, to building business cases for the innovation, to testing the innovation, and eventually to the launch of the innovation on foreign markets, or just the re-engineering of an existing innovation for release outside of the home country (considering different countries require different approaches than the home country).

If you're working in an SME specialized in Smart Building solutions, either indoor or outdoor solutions, and either active in the business or consumer market, then I would like to get in contact with you! My contact information can be found below, or you can leave your contact information below and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

I hope to hear from you, and if you have any questions or anything related, feel free to contact me as well.

Thank you.

Interviewee - have you considered the benefits of adopting blockchain for IoT?

Hello everyone,

Have you considered the benefits of combining blockchain and IoT? I am a MSc student at the Rotterdam School of Management and need interviewees who can provide insights on the potential company adoption of blockchain payment solutions for IoT. You don't need to have extensive knowledge on blockchain as I can provide a scenario and examples of how blockchain can be used and ask a few related questions. The topic is indeed very interesting so you could learn more in the process and find out how you can implement it for your company. If would like to participate or need more information, please contact me via or Skype (desislava.stoitsova).

Participants in our TransportLAB Challenge "Logistics Mobility"

Is it possible to make logistics more flexible, more real-time and mobile? What problems do we face and what solutions are at hand or can be developed? Can we create sustainable and real-time logistics in collaboration with smart Talking Traffic initiatives?

Are you also fascinated by sustainable, eco-friendly innovation in transport and logistics? Then participate in TransportLAB's online challenge, focusing on the connection between Logistics and Mobility.

Logistics are characterized by strict planning, deviations are costly and not wanted. However, nowadays deviations are more rule then exception.

We need excellent ideas/solutions to make transport and logistics future and social proof. From March 31st until April 20nd we therefore organize our annual online TransportLAB Challenge (1 open challenge and 3 specific challenges) focused on ‘Logistics Mobility’. The TransportLAB Challenge will be running online for two weeks, from April 1st – 14th. The physical kick-off meeting will take place during the opening event of the Impact Hub Amsterdam on March 31st. This day we also participate in the Smart City Innovation Lab ‘Keeping the Zuidas Accessible’.

Who can participate?

Not just data crunchers but also for other experts (and of course students/young engineers, alone or as a team) that can contribute to our challenges.

Looking for contacts in building area

Dear reader,

For a project of the University of Applied Sciences, we are doing research on the use of diesel generators in the Netherlands. We focus on reducing CO2 emissions by lessening the use of the generators. Building companies can profit because of lower diesel costs.

We would like to get in touch with people working in the building area or with people who can connect us to the right people. We have a few questions to ask.

Kind regards,

T: 0621130423

Beste Lezer,

Voor een onderzoeksproject in opdracht van de Hogeschool van Amsterdam, doen wij onderzoek naar het gebruik van dieselaggregaten in Nederland. Het onderzoek is gericht op het reduceren van Co2 uitstoot door het verminderen van het verbruik bij dieselaggregaten. Hiermee kunnen de dieselkosten van bouwbedrijven aanzienlijk worden verlaagd.

Graag zouden wij in contact willen komen met personen die werkzaam zijn of ons kunnen verbinden met mensen in de bouwbranche. Wij zouden graag wat korte vragen willen stellen omtrent dit onderwerp.

Alvast bedankt,


T: 0621130423

Possible partnership with Dharamshala

Dharamshala is selected as a smart city under the smart cities mission in India. Dharamshala Smart City (DSC) has received funding from the central government to develop it as a smart city in the next 5 years. DSC is very keen to collaborate with Netherlands on G2G level, K2K and B2B level. They are also looking at getting experts from Netherlands who can support DSC in urban planning, water, waste, mobility and planning for a smart city. It would be very interesting to explore and Amsterdam smart city would be interested in partnering with DSC and providing knowledge sharing.
