Amsterdam Science Park: A Novel Technology Transfer Ecosystem

Arno Meerman

Amsterdam Science Park (ASP) represents the highest concentration of publicly funded research in the Netherlands and is home to one of the largest concentrations of beta-based sciences in Europe. This unique juncture of prestigious education, high-quality research and knowledge-intensive business has been carefully cultivated over the years to stimulate innovation and collaboration. The triple helix collaboration exists between the city of Amsterdam, the University of Amsterdam and dozens of renowned research institutes and some 120 companies, from start-ups to multinationals. Each of these working in fields (including ICT, life sciences, advanced technology, energy and sustainability), collectively form a vibrant eco-system where business, science, education and innovation meet. The challenge in its genesis has been to strengthen and align mutual and cross-network connectivity between stakeholders in order to maximize impact as a technology transfer ecosystem.
