Amsterdam Water Science is an interdisciplinary collaboration between VU and UvA and combines natural sciences such as aquatic ecology, oceanography, ecohydrology and meteorology with social sciences such as water economics and water governance.

Research takes place across a wide range of international research projects in collaboration with leading universities in Europe, USA, Asia and Australia, and is funded through 14 major research grants (ERC and NWO Vici, Vidi & Veni).

Studies overview

Amsterdam Water Science researchers study changes in water quantity through assessing the interaction between hydrological and climate processes, and how these interactions lead to risks to society, the economy, and the environment. It also studies the biodiversity, species composition and ecosystem processes of both freshwater and marine ecosystems, ranging from tiny viruses and bacteria to large-scale ocean studies.
