Access to open data en datasets
At Amsterdam Business School, researchers can make use of many database licenses that provide rich and societally relevant data and datasets for their research through the University Library. The University Library strives to make its collections as open as possible, including the data and metadata required to access these, and to make the products of education and research of the institutions of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and of education and research institutions across the globe as accessible as possible. Providing open access to the collection metadata in various ways and through various channels plays a central role in this regard.
Collaboration with Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS)
An institutional collaboration with the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS) enables university researchers to have access to a wealth of data on the Dutch economy and society through Statline.

Amsterdam Business School’s Behavioural lab
The Amsterdam Business School’s Behavioural Laboratory is an academic research centre dedicated to the study of human activities that impact individual, team, or organisational performance, attitudes, and behaviours. Since 2016, researchers have used a diverse international subject pool to conduct cutting-edge behavioural research through laboratory experiments. These studies address a wide-range of managerially relevant topics and are available to all Amsterdam Business School faculty members and PhD students whose studies meet the Lab criteria.
The library of the University of Amsterdam has created a funding opportunity database which can be utilised by all UvA staff, academics and students looking for ways to fund their research. It is also a useful tool to locate funding opportunities for a travel grant, for instance, to attend a conference.
At Amsterdam Business School, research is conducted within a large variety of collaborations, partnerships and affiliated research centres, sometimes a result of interfacultairy initiatives, but always with close ties to the business and industry. We foster our ties with our practitioners and consultants.
