NEMO for adults: visit The Studio at the Marineterrein
The Studio is NEMO’s off-site location at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam: Kattenburgerstraat 5, Building 027A.
A warm house, a quick microwave meal and a mobile phone that allows you to stay connected 24/7 – there’s no shortage of comfort and convenience in our everyday lives. But almost everything would grind to a halt if we were to lose access to one vital source: energy. At the moment, this issue is more relevant than ever, both in politics and among consumers. Our addiction to energy, dependence on fossil fuels and the effects of our energy consumption on climate change are
the focus of NEMO’s new exhibition for adults: Energy Junkies.
In the Energy Junkies exhibition, you get to make the decisions that will determine our future. How would you transform our energy addiction into a healthy habit? Create your own carbon diet, choose the right medicines from the climate pharmacy and dream about a world where we are cured of our energy addiction. The Energy Junkies exhibition opens June 8 2022 at NEMO's Studio, the off-site location for adults at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam.
The Equinox platform is a versatile, cloud based, framework that
supports sustainable portfolio management activity using an entirely
modern and open source approach. This year we submitted a proposal under Challenge 2 of the EU Datathon 2022 (Theme: Transparency in Public Procurement) that aims to integrate procurement data with environmental impact data. We have just learned that we have been preselected to enter the formal stage of the competition and would love to hear from the community about tangible use cases, challenges or any other input as we develop equinox further

What are the Amsterdam Smart City Demo Days?
The Demo Days are one of the tools we use to stimulate innovation and encourage connection between our partners and community. The purpose of the Demo Days is to present the progress of various innovation projects to each other, ask for help, share dilemmas and involve more partners in a project to take these projects to the next level. In small groups we work on concrete questions.
We have created the Demo Days as a safe place for asking input from the network. A fresh perspective from another professional can be exactly what you need to move forward. You cannot work on a transition alone, which is why it’s important to involve others in your process. During these days, we also give the stage to community members to pitch projects and ask for input from our network.
That’s where you come in!
Not only are the Demo Days open for our community, but we offer you the opportunity to pitch your innovative initiative during the event. We want to involve our community more in the activities that we regularly organise, as you are an important part of the Amsterdam Smart City innovation ecosystem.
Are you working on an innovative project that could use some input? Or are you preparing for an inspiring event that needs a spotlight?
If it fits within our themes, sent a message to email@example.com or let us know in the comments. We would be happy to discuss if it's a match!
