Ambition

The Marineterrein will be developed into a future-proof city district featuring open innovation, accessible and flexible living and working spaces, unique housing, sports, recreation, and greenery.

At Marineterrein Amsterdam, solutions to global issues are devised, tested and put into practice. Here, a community of innovators, scientists, and businesses work together to boost and build upon the strong international position held by both Amsterdam and the Netherlands. The Marineterrein will be developed into a future-proof city district featuring open innovation, accessible and flexible living and working spaces, unique housing, sports, recreation, and greenery.

Emphasis on innovation

The emphasis on innovation stems from the growing importance of knowledge and creativity for the national economy and national employment. In addition, research has shown that inner city environments create excellent incubators for innovation. The Marineterrein will therefore become an economic ecosystem that will strengthen the city, the region, and the Netherlands as a whole.

Learning as a key function

Learning has always played an important role at the Marineterrein. The world is changing faster and faster because of new technology. This development is creating fundamentally new types of jobs that need different skills or call for different ways of learning. Organizations on the Marineterrein are working together to develop smart solutions that will help people gain the tools they need. By devising, testing, and applying new ways of learning, we want to make sure our society, our city, and our neighbourhood are better able to cope with these rapid changes.

Open and inviting area

The Marineterrein wants to play a leading role in the sustainability of water, energy, and waste streams. Marineterrein Amsterdam will become an open and inviting area with a physical connection to its surroundings and plenty of room for nature, recreation, interaction, and relaxation. Activities in the field of sport, culture, and knowledge will be available to everyone. The innovative nature of the area will also be reflected in the housing.
