ARIAS is a platform for collaborative research through scientific and artistic practices. Its foundational drive is to nurture a diverse and sustainable research ecology among the institutions and organisations of education and knowledge in Amsterdam.
The platform forwards research on the intersection of the sciences, arts, and other practice-based disciplines. ARIAS stimulates transdisciplinary collaborations and experimentation with innovative methodologies, and co-develops the supportive structures needed for such hybrid forms of research that make alternative perspectives on today’s complex issues possible.
This is the agenda ARIAS articulates and acts upon as mediator and generator in between five knowledge institutions for academic and higher education that founded the platform in 2016: University of Amsterdam (UvA), VU Amsterdam (VU), Gerrit Rietveld Academie (GRA) / Sandberg Instituut (SI), Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) and Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK).
