The research is structured around 2 PhD trajectories, with one PhD from architecture/sociology (working at UvA) and one PhD from data science (working at TU Delft). The collaborators form the city of Amsterdam are Amsterdam Zuidoost neighbourhood teams and the city of Amsterdam OIS department (Onderzoek, Informatie en Statistiek). It is a great potential that the collaborators of the research are engaged with the city with different levels of expertise; while the neighbourhood teams (gebiedsmakelaars) are in direct contact with the area they work in, communicating the needs, statements and opinions of the residents with the city government, the researchers at the Statistics department focus on analysing the city with the different sources of data that is being collected.
The work in progress is published on Amsterdam Open Research Platform. In the interaction between the data and the humanities research teams, and from the perspective of policymaking, the research platform contributes to making this interdisciplinary collaboration successful. Acquired visual data, interviews, rhythm analyses and interventions, proxies, data correlations and translations, models, demo’s, prototypes, and more are all published here. The structural gathering of all these elements, like a ‘logbook’, also facilitates a detailed account of the interdisciplinary research trajectory and can as such be analysed at the end.
