As Amsterdam's Chief Science Officer, she inspires and connects various research programs between city, municipality, universities, and colleges. She initiates and directs research based questions from officials from various boards in the City, and from university researchers in alpha, beta, and gamma sciences. The definition of the research agenda, the formulation of research questions, the design, the methodology, and means of validation and valorization are determined by the integral and accumulative reality of the city. In this way, various partners in Amsterdam are building a sustainable knowledge infrastructure around the major challenges of our time such as equal opportunities, climate adaptation, a healthy living environment, smart mobility and digitization.
