We would like to invite Centre for Urban Studies members to attend a workshop for using the platform. In this invitation you will find the description and dates of the workshops.

What is is a digital platform for research and knowledge, about Amsterdam and the metropolitan area. Information about research by Amsterdam-based municipal organizations, universities and other knowledge institutes is shown here, so that researchers (civil servants, scientists and others) can find each other. Researchers can create their own material, which they are then the authors of. The knowledge they share is linked through the use of keywords. Watch the video on the openresearch homepage for more information about the platform.

What is the goal of

The goal of is to share research and knowledge, to make connections visible, and to collaborate on doing research in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. Openresearch is relevant for researchers who work in / with the city. Researchers use the platform to share knowledge and find other researchers who work within the same theme. Digital project spaces facilitate the collaboration with people outside your own institution.
