Join the AMS Academy’s Winter School starting on March 7th during which you will be introduced to our Urban Living Lab approach. You will be working on a real cases in multidisciplinary teams towards creating a real Living Lab design.

In the beginning of March 2022, the AMS Academy for professional education is organizing the Urban Living Lab Winter school. The week is filled with inspiring lectures, a lot of teamwork, rapid exercises and a toolbox filled with practical tools to work with in your own practice.

Learning goals

You will learn to understand what a Living Lab is and when it can be of added value to start one. You’ll also gain hands-on knowledge on what is needed to have a successful start, and how to deal with issues such as stakeholder involvement and citizen empowerment.

The winter school will challenge you to work with a new mindset, build a new network of professionals and academia. It gives you the opportunity to be a part of the next steps towards the future of one of Amsterdam’s key projects. During the winter school, we will help you solve the real-world challenge you work on with your team.

Case-based learning

During the week, you will be working on a real case together with your multidisciplinary team. Each team will work on their own real-world case. Your team will have the opportunity to meet and interview stakeholders and finally present your Living Lab design to a real case-owner.

For the winter school we are currently still developing the cases, based on the AMS Institute research themes, which you can find here. The cases where we will work on in March will be announced beginning of December 2021.
