UASNL lunch session: SDG 11

Applied research in action: Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11)


Curious to learn more about SDG11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), and how applied research contributes to this? Then join the first UASNL online lunch session on 20 January 2021. As part of a series of lunch sessions focused on the SDGs and applied research, these events will cover how applied research contributes to societal impact.

In a talk show setting, researchers will be interviewed on their research, projects and ambitions. The researchers will bring their own perspective to the table, presenting a broad scope of research and innovation on Sustainable Cities and Communities.

This first edition will kick off with the following speakers:

- Frans Melissen, Breda UAS

- Mieke Oostra, HU UAS Utrecht

- Iain Macdonald, ArtEZ University of the Arts

AUAS employees, students and external partners are welcome to join all UASNL events.


UASNL is an informal collaboration of 14 Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS), who work together to strengthen their European research profile. Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences is among them. Through its EU office in Brussels, UASNL contributes to policy developments, builds European partnerships and shows the value of Impact Driven Research in answering the challenges Europe faces.

This event builds on the recent launch of the UASNL network, in which UASNL members - including the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences - introduced themselves to stakeholders and showcased the impact of applied research in action.
