Project information

Participating in the innovation district project team is for those who understand we’re entering a new era of innovation and dare to help create something new. We believe that tackling today’s increasingly complex challenges – like the rise of robotics, digitalisation and fast-growing cities – requires a cross- industry approach. One characterised by openness and collaboration. Not by secrecy and isolation. We believe that by joining forces, we can create a diverse and ingenious ecosystem whose value far exceeds any individual contribution.

As a programme team we are developing the right environment, with the right people with the right mind-set and the right tools, to inspire discovery of the unknown and make change happen. The innovation hub in the south-east of Amsterdam is where we are aiming to create a campus bringing together a community of like-minded people from all sectors to create radical new solutions. A cradle of new ideas, born from diverse and complementary backgrounds, capabilities and perspectives. For research, to build knowledge, and to attract talent. To provide a structure for cross-industry co- creation, and to accelerate and scale co-created initiatives.

In June 2018 our CEO Ralph Hamers announced the campus during the Money2020 event. Since then the programme team and other internal and external parties involved have been working very hard to develop the campus concepts. Currently, we are starting our next phase of piloting these formats with external clients (start-ups, scale-ups, mid-corporates, corporates, knowledge institutes and others) and learn if this the right way to build the ecosystem. Over the past months we’ve built up a network of interested companies and experts who would like to participate in the programs and be part of the campus community. To support us in strengthening this first base of the community we’re looking for a qualified community manager to join our team.
