The University of Amsterdam is ambitious, creative and committed: a leader in international science and a partner in innovation, the UvA has been inspiring generations since 1632.
Vision on teaching and learning
Teaching is one of the university's core activities, alongside research, social responsibility and innovation. At the UvA we consider teaching to be just as important as research.
Vision on research
At the UvA, we want to ensure a sharp positioning of our research. This means more focused choices based on the uniqueness and competitive advantage of research in institutes and groups. It also means more effective alignment with social and economic issues outside the UvA.
The UvA will also continue to invest in state-of-the-art research facilities that will improve the quality of research. The UvA considers scientific integrity and open science to be essential prerequisites for the quality of research.
