Startup in Residence Toolkit Launch

Featured image

The last couple of months we’ve (together with other SiR pogrammes) worked really hard to create a Manual. This Manual contains tips, tools and insights that come from the collective knowledge of 6 SIR editions in Amsterdam, and 15+ editions in the Netherlands.
It is a step-by-step guide to set-up and run a SIR programme. It is a workbook with “how-to’s” per step, worksheets and insights from previous programmes and contains a library with useful attachments. We want to inspire and motivate others to explore new ways of working, to set up and run a SIR programme or develop and/or expand an existing programme.

We want to invite you to the online launch presentation on Wednesday 25th of November. The first presentation is from 10:30 – 12:00 (Dutch), the second presentation is 13:30 – 15:00 (English). During the presentation we will give more information about the Manual and have plenty of time to answer all of your questions.

ONLINE AMS Summer School - Urban Living Labs

Featured image

Build your knowledge & skills on the Living Lab approach during the online AMS Summer School 2020. This year's Summer School focuses on challenges brought forward by Amsterdam: Quay Walls and Bridges, Future Proof Assets and Positive energy Districts.

The challenges facing cities around the globe are complex and multidisciplinary by nature. Attempting to solve them in conventional linear ways is insufficient for addressing these manifold human-environment relationships that are at the heart of these challenges. Alternative approaches are necessary; ones that acknowledge the need for distributed problem-solving capacity and infrastructures for multi-stakeholder collaboration that incorporate local knowledge and practices.

AMS Institute is leading the way to develop, test, use, and train on Living Lab approaches. One of the forms in which to transfer knowledge and experience is in our Summer School.

This year we, focus on challenges brought forward by Amsterdam: Quay Walls and Bridges, Future Proof Assets and Positive energy Districts.

What are Urban Living Labs?
Urban Living Labs are environments for different stakeholders to explore and experiment together on solutions for complex urban challenges. The goal within Living Labs is to make impact by developing new products on a small scale – be it an object, a service, a technology, an application, or a system – and to find solutions that can be implemented on a larger scale. This is done in a real-life and co-creating setting in which different stakeholders give shape to the innovation process. The actors are users, private and public actors, as well as knowledge institutes. In essence, it is a methodology to help the collaboration and the structuring the content of an explorative process.

What you will get
You will learn to understand what a Living Lab is and when it can be of added value to start one. You’ll also gain hand-on knowledge on what is needed to have a successful start, and how to deal with issues such as stakeholder involvement and citizen empowerment.

The summer school will challenge you to work with a new mindset, build a new network of professionals and academia. It gives you the opportunity to be a part of the next steps towards the future of one of Amsterdam’s key projects.

During the summer school, we will help you solve the real-world challenge you bring with your team.

What we will do During the week you will work in a team of 5 participants on a pre-defined real-life case. The Urban Living Lab Summer School consists of lectures, online co-working sessions, trainings, and real-world interventions. It will tap into theoretical frameworks of Living Lab methodology, process tools to help deliver a plan of approach and deploy teamwork on a real-life case. It will focus on your own learning goals for reinventing cities of tomorrow. The mix of participants (Academic Researchers, Public Professionals, and Company Innovation Managers) generates new insights and perspectives on the challenges by cocreating solutions together.

Requirements for participation
As a participant,

  • you are a professional with minimal five years of experience in the field of urban challenges;
  • or you are involved as a PhD or Postdoc in urban challenged research projects
  • you identify with themes like urban circularity, mobility, energy, food systems, climate resilience and digitization;
  • you strive for sustainable, innovative and just solutions;

Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab

Featured image

Like cities worldwide, Marineterrein Amsterdam faces major challenges. For example in mobility, circularity, and (ethical) digization. To come up with innovative solutions, there is a need for physical location, knowledge and collaboration. Marinetterein Amsterdam Living Lab (MALL) is a place where this happens.

The Marineterrein uses the terrain as experimental environment for its own development. The partners work together to stimulate collaboration between companies, scientists, students and government agencies. This creates (scalable) experiments that are tested on the grounds, and ultimately applied in urban environments.

MALL is a place to research, experiment and test in a real-life setting. To achieve this MALL partners bring together their expertise, network, and communities in the field of research, innovation, urban development and experimentation at this unique location in Amsterdam.

Everyone is welcome to test at the Marineterrein. Given the special location, high demands are made on parties who come to develop and test on the Marineterrein. In addition to thematic alignment with the themes of the parties, careful consideration is given to whether the applications are innovative, whether they ensure connection between people and knowledge and to opt for a clear focus within a relevant issue.

Current Experiments
CINDERELA | CINDERELA is a demonstration plant that transforms urine into nutrient-rich fertilizer. The plant consists of a refurbished shipping container – containing a laboratory and two urine-diverting toilets – and an adjacent greenhouse which also serves as a meeting space.
Roboat | autonomous floating vessels that create a more dynamic urban infrastructure, and provide new ways of transporting people and goods.
Space for Food | the European Space Agency (ESA) explores the potential and scalability of applying space technology for applications in urban contexts.
Smart Roof 2.0 | an innovative, lightweight, blue-green roof equipped with a Permavoid drainage layer that stores rainwater and provides plants with water during dry spells.
Curious to see what else is being tested? Click here for a full list!

Open Calls
Amsterdam Drone Lab | drone flight testing facility at the heart of the Amsterdam city centre.

Want to start testing in the heart of Amsterdam?
MALL provides a publicly accessible but privately governed site in the heart of Amsterdam. This ensures you to test and implement solutions in the public space under credible circumstances with less restrictions. From quay walls, to buildings and roofs. The infrastructure of the site has been set up in such a way that experiments can be easily set up.
Submit your experiment!

MALL is a collaboration between Marineterrein Amsterdam and Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions, with partners Amsterdam Smart City and NEMO Science Museum.

Amsterdam Smart City’s Knowledge Exchange Goes Online!

Featured image

Demand for knowledge and collaboration is greater than ever as cities look for innovative solutions and best practices to respond to the Covid-19 crisis. This is why Amsterdam Smart City is adapting to the corona crisis and the "new normal" by bringing its Knowledge Exchange programs online.

Any interested party, irrespective of their location, can now book one of three standard Knowledge Exchange programs hosted online, via the Zoom platform:

  • Smart City Consultation Session (45 min): This interactive session gives participants the opportunity to ask all of your questions about the Amsterdam Smart City program and projects.
  • Introduction to Amsterdam Smart City (1.5hr): This session shares the development and evolution of Amsterdam Smart City with a focus on governance, key projects and lessons learned since its inception in 2009.
  • Smart City Deep Dive (2.5hr): Dive deeper into one of four societal transitions central to the Amsterdam Smart City program: mobility, energy, circularity economy, or digital city. This session includes presentations and discussions with two experts and focuses on best practices and more than a decade of lessons learned from Amsterdam’s innovation ecosystem.

Launching New Program: Smart City Exchange

In response to demand for exchanging best practices, we are also launching a new “Smart City Exchange” to support cities and organizations with their urban innovation ambitions. During these sessions Amsterdam Smart City shares best practices and lessons learned from Amsterdam’s innovation ecosystem on a specific topic, for example mobility, energy of community-driven initiatives. In exchange we would like to hear from your city or organization’s experience and best practices on the same topic. In this way we create mutually beneficial Smart City Exchange!

To enquire about the Smart City Exchange or any of the other of our Knowledge Exchange programs, email cornelia@amsterdamsmartcity.com with a brief summary of the key challenges you are working and what you hope to get out of a collaboration with Amsterdam Smart City.

Join the Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab New Normal Challenge!

Featured image

How do we shape the new normal? Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab is looking for innovative ideas to help us safely reopen our restaurants and public spaces. Join the New Normal Challenge for a chance to test your solution on the Marineterrein!

The Coronavirus crisis has transformed our lives and its impacts will continue to be felt for months, potentially years. We are only beginning to shape the “New Normal”. What impact will keeping a 1.5 meter distance away from each other have on our lives?

Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab (MALL) is a place to develop, test and apply solutions to global urban challenges and it’s the ideal location to bring creative ideas for our post Coronavirus life to fruition. Amsterdam Smart City is a core partner of the MALL.

With The New Normal Challenge, we are looking for other innovative ideas that can help us shape the new normal. This includes spatial, technological, social, and behavioral solutions for a better living environment.

Specifically we are looking for creative solutions on three challenges:

  1. How can restaurants and cafes on the Marineterrein safely reopen and adapt to the rapidly changing governmental guidelines?
  2. How can we ensure safe access and use of public space on the Marineterrein, especially during upcoming summer months when many people use it for cooling off?
  3. How can we use the current corona crisis to support lasting change toward more sustainable practices in Amsterdam?

Join the Challenge!

The challenge is open to anyone with an innovative idea, including citizens, NGO’s, start-ups, SME’s and corporates. Interested parties should submit their proposal by Friday, June 5 at 19:00.

Selection Process

Following an initial evaluation the top three ideas per challenge will be invited to pitch their solution during an online event on Wednesday, June 10. A jury will select a winning idea based on the following criteria:

  • How well does the solution address one or more challenges?
  • How innovative, sustainable and inclusive is the solution?
  • What is the economic and social impact of the solution?
  • Can the solution be implemented quickly?
  • Does the solution have the potential to scale-up nationally or internationally?


The winning idea per challenge will receive a free experimentation slot on Marineterrein Amsterdam for 3-6 months from June – November. The winners will also get access to the Challenge partners to develop, implement and scale their solution.

Smart Cities The Economic and Social Value of Building Intelligent Urban Spaces

A 2016 publication with a high vendor and top-down level approach.

Interesting to see how most smart cities have evolved their approaches:

from top - down to bottom - up
from centralised to decentralised
from municipality to community

from supplier to user and citizen centric
from solution orientated to problem orientated
from tech push to demand pull
from PPP to triple double helix (quintuple helix)
from 'capex' to 'opex'

from old fashioned consultancy roadmap to learning by doing
from 'talking the talk' to 'walking the walk'
from planning to design
from assessment to information
from physical to digital
from linear to circulair
from ownership to availability

from fossils to clean, creating sustainable options for ALL
from single use to restorative and regenerative use od resources
from closed to open using tech for social value
from crowded and polluting to smart and sustainable mobility solutions

last but not least: from 'EGO-systems' to 'ECO-systems'

The five cornerstones of effective governance to drive urban innovation.

For urban innovation and digitalisation efforts to succeed, a municipality needs to think through its internal organisation and governance structures. Few ingredients more sharply define the difference between success and failure than having the right governance structures in place.

We asked member city leaders from the Cities Today Institute to share their organisational structure and governance choices. What does their mandate look like? How do they operate across silos? And what to do with the traditional IT manager?

Five things cities should be doing in the next decade

As a decade of change has come to an end, what will the 2020s bring for cities?

Much of our work with city leaders and governments starts from an immediate pressing need–a housing crisis or a rise in knife crime–but so often moves onto preparing for the future trends that will change all of our lives, and cities as we know them.

Amsterdam Smart City partners at Smart City Expo Barcelona - part 5: Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Featured image

Next week the Amsterdam Smart City team travels, together with a couple of our program partners, to the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona. This is THE leading event for cities in the world. Main goal of the event is to empower cities and collectivize urban innovation across the globe. We asked our partners why they will join the Dutch innovation mission to Barcelona. We introduce you….. Mark van Wees and Marije Poel of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, who will present one of their most recent projects: ATELIER.

How is the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences contributing to the smart city?

The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences serves as a knowledge hub for Amsterdam Smart City. We develop knowledge, research and education about the do’s and don’ts of smart city projects. Our goal is to accelerate and elevate your smart city project, as we unravel the ‘Amsterdam’ approach and the key elements of making an impact in Amsterdam’s innovative ecosystem. We’re involved in several local and European Smart City projects. We aim for a multi-disciplinary approach to smart city development: technology, business, design, citizens engagement, governance, urban planning and psychology.

What is your vision of a smart city?

We believe that smart city projects can create more impact – and more effective ecosystems – if we learn from each other and share the tools and skills needed to make our cities smarter. We are starting a H2020 Lighthouse project with focus on positive-energy-districts and demonstrations in Amsterdam (Buiksloterham) and Bilbao. In the project one of our tasks is cross-project and cross-city cooperation.

What are your plans for the Smart City Expo in Barcelona?

We would like to meet people who want to join our learning community. Are you interested in learning about scaling up, business models, citizen involvement or smart city governance? Let us know! We would really like to learn from other smart city learning platforms as well.

And more specifically, as University of Applied Sciences, we just joined the SCC01 community as partner of project ATELIER, leading the cooperation with European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities-network. We therefore also want to reach out to other Horizon2020 SCC-EIP projects within the SCC community we can learn from and cooperate with.
