VU University Amsterdam seeks to find answers to scientific and societal questions. But we can’t do this in isolation; we must look beyond the boundaries of our scientific disciplines and seek collaboration with partners in society: government and the business sector.
Our research is divided into four themes, which reflect just how in touch we are with current societal issues, the Amsterdam clusters, national top sectors and European grand challenges. Scientific quality, interdisciplinary research and societal relevance are the key terms in our research. VU University Amsterdam invests in talent to stimulate top-class research. After all, the researchers define the quality of our research and education. The university cherishes its scientists and watches proudly as they raise the University’s reputation.
