As a knowledge institution, the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) inspires students and employees to create tomorrow.

Our applied scientific research centres on forging creative solutions and sustainable innovations to contemporary urban challenges. At AUAS, we focus on themes that connect to real issues affecting the city of Amsterdam and the professional field: our priority areas. 

Five priority areas have been chosen:

  • Amsterdam Creative Industries
  • Urban Education
  • Urban Management
  • Urban Technology
  • Urban Vitality

Entrepreneurship has also been selected as an additional focus area for AUAS research. 

These priority areas are multidisciplinary. Various faculties contribute to developing solutions for issues related to these topics. The core focus of these priority areas lies in research, however there is always a connection to AUAS’ education programmes.
