City Centre Campus

Humanities Lab


The University of Amsterdam’s City Centre Campus, at the heart of the historic city, is home to the Faculty of Humanities and the University Library. Adding to this several national humanities research institutes are located here. The close proximity of the museums, cultural institutions and media organisations add to the unique position and strength of this Amsterdam humanities cluster.

Venture Lab Humanities is tuned to facilitate the many forms of innovation in the humanities. It applies a new and broad approach that transcends the ‘traditional’ innovation perspective. In doing so it closely cooperates with VOX-POP, the Faculty of Humanities pop-up program offering students, staff, and others a space to organise debates, exhibitions, lectures, and more.

Thus a stimulating environment is created for humanities start-ups to stage experiments and present themselves. Vice versa organisers and visitors of VOX-POP events can make us of the entrepreneurial expertise present. Venture Lab Humanities offers dedicated coaching to enable students, staff and alumni to discover new perspectives on realizing
their ambitions.
