What is the Network Council?

The Network Council is a powerful network of over 140 leading decision-makers (board members, CEOs, chairpersons, founders, CIOs, directors) within companies, knowledge institutions and governments. Have a look at the Network Council members.

Together with Board members, other partners and the Amsterdam Economic Board team Network Council members make an impact on complex challenges in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. We do this by connecting strong parties that do not automatically encounter each other. Working on the three most important themes our region is currently dealing with, we create breakthroughs that partners cannot achieve on their own.

Amsterdam Economic Board is a trusted intermediary between parties. As a decisive agenda-setter, we conduct the strategic-economic conversation about these themes. With our partners, we collaborate on concrete initiatives and programmes. Together, we contribute to making this region the most innovative, sustainably connected region, in which there is room for suitable work and development for everyone.
