VU Smart Campus LivingLab

VU Amsterdam is bursting with data that can make teaching, administrative and facilities processes more efficient and therefore, make work and study easier and more enjoyable. So why aren’t we using it on a massive scale yet?

With the VU initiative ‘Smart Campus LivingLabs’, we are bringing together researchers, support staff and students to explore how we can use this data to create a sustainable and social campus. So that together as a ‘Living Lab’ we can make the VU campus the ideal place to study and work.

Our approach is data-driven, project-oriented and connects initiatives and partners. In dedicated projects student teams under the supervision of connected researchers optimize existing practices, like usage of study rooms, or develop new insights, like analysis of the studiegids (study plan), and suggest new services, like energy savings for buildings.

VU Smart Campus is closely connected to the VU Amsterdam vision of an Innovation Campus. The VU SmartCampus Activator Team is supporting projects and interested people across the Campus.

Smart Campus speaker series 

On Tuesday 8 March, we took a virtual walk through LivingLab projects at the Marineterrein and discovered the power of analytics for campus development during the first edition of the Smart Campus speaker series. Tom van Arman and Tom Griffioen addressed open (research) questions of our future Digital Society and illustrated how connected data can provide new insights, while respecting privacy. You will be able to watch it here shortly.
