Amsterdam Science Park
With over 10,000 students, scientists and entrepreneurs, you’ll find cutting-edge knowledge institutes, top-class facilities and business incubators in one convenient and well-designed location.
Amsterdam Science Park offers excellent opportunities for research and business activities in ICT (infrastructure), Chemistry, Physics, Life Sciences, Advanced Instrumentation and sustainability.
Spatially, Amsterdam Science Park is designed as a network of meeting places with various restaurants, sports and congress facilities.
The buildings, landscape and public spaces are interconnected and strongly intertwined. Its striking, prizewinning architecture plays
a prominent role. The artworks dotted around the park also help to make an inspiring and inviting environment.
Boasting the highest concentration of publicly funded research in the Netherlands, Amsterdam Science Park is currently home to eight University of Amsterdam research institutes and three NWO institutes: AMOLF, CWI and Nikhef. The new Advanced Research Centre for Nanolithography (ARCNL), a joint venture of ASML and the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) conducts fundamental and applied research
in areas that are key to unlocking innovation in the global semiconductor industry.
We offer a variety of profitable investment opportunities in real-estate projects such as (shared) office and lab space, hotel and congress facilities and student housing.
