Urban Management is an interdisciplinary research programme of the University of Applied Science Amsterdam
UM utilizes policy and problem-oriented research in living labs (three currently running) to work on solutions for difficulties that urban areas face. Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences translates scientific findings to concrete pilot studies in urban regions in diverse stakeholder arrangements.
The Urban Management program is a collaborative venture between the School of Economics and Management, the School of Social Work and Law and the School of Technology and the Municipality of Amsterdam. These broad-ranging foundations ensure that Urban Management tackles urban problems from a social, economic and physical perspective.
We focuse on solutions to the complex and intractable problems that arise in metropolitan areas
Such as poverty, problems with neighbourhood safety, poor liveability, urban transformation and economic competitiveness. We utilize policy and problem-oriented research in living labs (three currently running) to work on solutions for difficulties that urban areas face.
