Ambitions of the Amsterdam Economic Board
In 2022, the Amsterdam Economic Board will continue its work as a dynamic initiator, a committed connector and an energetic agenda-setter.
We have developed into a trusted intermediary that actively connects parties in working on the smart, green and healthy future of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. From our neutral position, we are able act as a link between business, education and government, and to stimulate, accelerate and implement solutions.
We do so via our initiatives and programmes.
Our great strength is our strong and relevant network, including our Board, the Network Council and other partners with which we build mission-driven coalitions in relation to our key social themes. Together we launch initiatives in response to complex challenges. We drive new partnerships and initiatives, and facilitate collaboration between organisations that would otherwise not necessarily come into contact.
The Amsterdam Economic Board addresses issues that enable progress towards a smart, green and healthy future. From our position in the network, we tackle topics that call for new solutions and breakthroughs. Together we draw the attention of public and private organisations to urgent topics and offer concrete solutions in our initiatives and programmes.
