Greenhouses Amsterdam Science Park

Leading research institutes

Amsterdam Science Park is home to eight research institutes of the University of Amsterdam. This means there is onsite expertise in astronomy, computer science, biology, logic, language and computation, physics, mathematics, life sciences and chemistry. Innovation Exchange Amsterdam (IXA) is the joint knowledge transfer office of the Amsterdam universities and medical centers, that supports researchers in creating value from their knowledge and expertise.

In addition, the park houses the following leading research institutes:

  • AMOLF: Research institute for physics of functional complex matter
  • CWI: National institute for mathematics and computer science
  • Nikhef: National institute for subatomic physics
  • SURF: Hosts the Dutch Supercomputer and offers high-performing computing services to scientific and educational institutes
  • eScienceCenter: Netherlands e-Science Center for the development and application of academic research software
  • ARCNL: Advanced research center for nanolithography
  • ICAI: National Innovation center for Artificial Intelligence, focused on developing joint technology between academia, industry and government

Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI)

ICAI is an open national network of academic, industrial and governmental partners that is based at Amsterdam Science Park. ICAI will be housed in a new co-creation building for education, research and collaboration with commercial and societal partners (LAB42). At present, ICAI has fourteen partners: Ahold Delhaize, Bosch, Delft Imaging Systems, Delft University of Technology, Elsevier, Inception Institute of Artificial Intelligence Ltd. (IIAI), ING, National Police, Qualcomm, Radboud UMC, Thirona, University of Amsterdam, Utrecht University and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

ARCNL: Public Private Fundamental Research Collaboration

The Advanced Research Centre for Nanolithography, an unique collaboration of Science & Industry, started in January 2014 at Amsterdam Science Park. ARCNL conducts fundamental and applied research in areas that are key to unlocking innovation in the global semiconductor industry. ARCNL’s start was within one year after ASML had issued a tender for proposals for a research centre that would feed the company with new, fundamental knowledge. ASML is the world leader in the production of the lithography machines that define the structures of processor and memory chips for computers, tablets and smartphones. In order to remain at the forefront it constantly innovates its products and processes. Novel insights from research by excellent academics in the relevant fields, will enable them to continue making big leaps.
