Integrating knowledge for a sustainable future

Amsterdam Sustainability Institute

The Amsterdam Sustainability Institute (ASI) provides an inclusive umbrella for sustainability-related research at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

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.

See who is behind the Amsterdam Sustainability Institute

The Amsterdam Sustainability Institute connects researchers through its interdisciplinary research clusters and by providing seed funding, among other initiatives. See who is behind the projects and why ASI researchers think that collaborating across disciplines is crucial when tackling sustainability issues.

Here you find more information about our research clusters. And here about our seed money programme.

Research Clusters

Deriving from the profile theme of ‘Science for Sustainability’, the ASI research clusters have been developed via a bottom-up process involving both junior and senior researchers. Our 7 research clusters address some of today’s most urgent challenges and are linked to one or more Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Their membership consists of researchers with various disciplinary backgrounds, engaging in a broad spectrum of activities, often together with societal actors.
