Institute for Advanced Study (IAS)

Collaboration partners

Besides our research partners, we also work with organisations from the public and private sectors to find solutions to complex challenges.

Working together to solve complex challenges

We live in an increasingly complex, highly connected and rapidly changing world, causing all kinds of new challenges. Through the IAS, you can get access to a wide variety of researchers from all across the UvA to join in collaborative, solutions-oriented research projects. By combining our expertise with that of public and private sector organisations, we can find ways to predict, control, or mitigate the effects of pressing societal challenges.


Criminal network disruption

Example: tackling criminal networks

Working closely with the Dutch police, an interdisciplinary research team found a more effective way to destabilise cannabis networks: removing very specialised players rather than the most high-profile and seemingly influential criminals.

Work with us

We aim to create an open research environment where the academic community, business sector and public sector can jointly develop innovative solutions. Interested? Please contact us to discuss the options:
