Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ASI promotes cooperation between related but traditionally divided disciplinary approaches across VU faculties. It further builds bridges among VU researchers and governmental, private and cultural stakeholders to increase scientific and societal impact.
Building strong and lasting connections, ASI acts as a knowledge centre for emerging multi- and interdisciplinary research and acquires and provides funding for it.
Our ambition as ASI is to contribute relevant, excellent and impactful science to society, in the Netherlands, Europe and beyond.
