Smart City Academy


We believe that smart city projects can create more impact – and more effective ecosystems – if we learn from each other and share the tools and skills needed to make our cities smarter.

Smart City Academy therefore serves as a knowledge hub for Amsterdam Smart City, as we develop knowledge, research and education about the do’s and don’ts of smart city projects. Our goal is to accelerate and elevate your smart city project, as we unravel the ‘Amsterdam’ approach and the key elements of making an impact in Amsterdam’s innovative ecosystem. A vital part of our mission is to share this knowledge with the professionals today and tomorrow.


Our expertise focuses on a variety of urban and transition issues such as mobility, energy, food, circular economy and construction. We develop and share this expertise based on:

  • Smart partnerships
  • User involvement
  • Upscaling
  • Data collection, analysis and visualisation
  • Sustainable behaviour


We are a partner of Amsterdam Smart City and work with many businesses, startups, students and local governments, such as Gemeente Amsterdam and the Platform Smart Cities and Citizens (website in Dutch).
