Join the Amsterdam Smart City Monthly Open House!

Amsterdam Smart City is receiving an increasing amount of requests from international delegations interested in exchanging knowledge and setting up new collaborations with ASC partners and network. This is why we designed a Delegations Program which allows visiting delegations the possibility to book a program customized to their needs (see our "Visits" page).

We also receive a lot of requests from individuals and small groups of civi servants, solution providers, researchers, students, journalists, etc. To better accommodate these requests, we are piloting a Monthly Open House every last Friday of the month where we try to combine these visits:
- Friday, 26 January 10:00 – 12:30
- Friday, 23 February 10:00 – 12:30
- Friday, 30 March 10:00 – 12:30

Target audience: Everyone interested in smart city topics, including civil servants, solution providers, urban planners, researchers and students and want to know more about Amsterdam Smart City.

Accessibility: Each open house can accommodate up to 15 individuals. Larger groups can book a private tour. For more informations visit our "Visits" page.

Costs: Due to high demand and limited number of spaces, a €30 per person fee applies. A few student tickets are available for €20 each. This basic fee is meant to prevent no-shows and cover expenses.

Share your experience: Are you a visitor interested in sharing your (international) project or product? Or are you a local innovator interested in sharing your solution during an open house or in our temporary exhibit? Post your questions or comments below, or e-mail cornelia@amsterdamsmartcity.com.

International delegations inspired by Amsterdam Smart City’s approach

Featured image

Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) is receiving an increasing number of requests from international delegations interested in learning from Amsterdam’s leadership as a smart city. In response to this demand, ASC has developed a Delegations Program to welcome visiting delegations interested in exchanging experiences and meeting local innovators. We hosted 44 delegations already! What is the background of these visiting groups? And what topics are they interested in?

Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) is receiving an increasing number of requests from international delegations interested in learning from Amsterdam’s leadership as a smart city.

In response to this demand, ASC has developed a Delegations Program to welcome visiting delegations interested in exchanging experiences and meeting local innovators. During January - August timeframe, we hosted 44 delegations consisting of 357 delegates from 15 different countries.

In this post we share some recent delegation experiences. What is the background of these visiting groups? And what topics are they interested in?

German civil servants explore sustainable mobility

A recent visit was by a delegation of civil servants from Leverkusen, Germany. The delegation consisted of key staff members from the mobility and planning departments as well as city council representatives interested in cycling planning and smart mobility. Walther Ploos van Amstel introduced Amsterdam’s approach to electrifying transport and innovations in the logistics sector. The group was also lead on a bicycle tour illustrating spatial and traffic planning elements which support high rates of cycling.

Young Taiwanese entrepreneurs envision a circular economy

In August ASC hosted a group of Taiwanese students and young entrepreneurs on a two-day program focused on the circular economy. The group got a broad perspective on circular developments during expert presentations from Circle Economy and learned about community driven projects from Tapp. The group also met a number of social entrepreneurs while visiting Makerversity, Plantage Lab, B. Amsterdam and Impact Hub.

Australian Trade Mission Innovation Roundtable

ASC also cohosts delegations in collaboration with partners such as AMS Institute. In June we organized an innovation roundtable for a high level Australia trade mission including the Minister of Finance and Ambassador to the Netherlands. ASC partners illustrated case studies and best practices across different sectors. These included innovative energy pilots under the City-zen program, the recently launched City Dataportal and Arcadis’ perspective on smart urbanism.

Innovation Norway explores Amsterdam’s innovation ecosystem

With Amsterdam being the winner of the 2016 European Capital of Innovation (iCapital), Innovation Norway was interested in learning from Amsterdam’s approach to fostering innovation with a focus on digital connectivity, energy and startups. Representatives from the public and private sectors met with a number of innovative startups, including 30MHz, specializing in IoT solutions and Quby, the creator of Toon smart thermostat. The group also visited TQ – Amsterdam’s largest tech hub, where they met with DutchBasecamp to discuss the role of “landing pads” for startups scaling internationally.

Officials from Seoul look for ways to engage citizens

In June we hosted a South Korean delegation consisting of governmental officials and technology firms interested in citizen engagement and community driven projects. Digital Connectivity Adviser Carlien Roodink provided a broad perspective on the city’s approach to digital innovation and connectivity developments in Amsterdam. The group also met with Paul Manwaring of Glimworm who shared his approach to working with communities to build meaningful projects that have a positive impact on people’s lives, with the IoT Living Lab as one example.

Why are international delegations important to Amsterdam Smart City?

The Amsterdam Smart City Delegations Programs provide opportunities to exchange knowledge and can lead to new collaborations. We are also proud to hear that Amsterdam’s culture of collaboration and innovation serves as inspiration to other cities. As one delegate recently put it: “ what seems to be different about Amsterdam is that it doesn’t just talk about innovation, but it actually does it!”
