Amsterdam’s home of life sciences

Amsterdam is a global leader in cancer research and AI. Beside that there’s an extensive base of clinical research offering opportunities for cutting-edge collaborations. The city is home to two academic hospitals, the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Sanquin and the Academic Center for Dentistry. The momentum keeps growing and several industry players have relocated to Amsterdam since the European Medicines Agency arrived in 2019. Amsterdam’s spirit of innovation is in our DNA, and this is just the beginning.

Amsterdam Science Park’s inspiring environment places businesses in contact with researchers from some of the Netherlands’ most prestigious research universities. Their research programmes lead to pioneering discoveries across various aspects of life sciences. In the past few years there have been major advances in AI and computational modelling for health, data science for life sciences, bioinformatics, neuroscience, biotechnology and cell and systems biology.
