Centre for Applied Research on Business and Economics


The Centre for Applied Research on Economics & Management (CAREM) is the centre of expertise in applied scientific research into the disciplines of business and economics of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Our research projects provide answers to issues taken from the corporate practice of the Amsterdam metropolitan region and from society at large. Delving into the issues, our professors and lecturer-researchers closely collaborate with companies and knowledge institutions within and outside the Amsterdam region.

CAREM also strives for the proliferation of insights from research into the curriculum, in order to equip students for the labour market with the most recent developments in their discipline.

Professor Urban Economic Innovation - Willem van Winden

Professor Differentiated HRM - Martha Meerman

Professor Corporate Governance & Leadership - Frank Jan de Graaf
