What do we do?

We represent Chemistry for sustainability and Chemistry for life sciences business in the Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam. Our mission is to stimulate and facilitate Innovation by connecting professionals.

For Business & Industry

The Amsterdam Chemistry Network can provide you with support while finding locations to settle, for example, at the port of Amsterdam. It is also the place to build and grow your professional network, find partners and collaborate. Next to that, ACN also aims to become the brand that represents the chemical industry and community which is present in the metropolitan region in Amsterdam.

For University & Research

It is becoming more relevant than ever, to connect academic research output to practice. For this, academics need to find end users to test, adopt and ultimately apply the new knowledge that is generated. Amsterdam Chemistry Network can provide academic researchers with those connections, help you find end-users of the technologies that you are working on. For students we also aim to function as an active job-portal.

Lite Membership* Invitation only

At ACN we understand that early-stage and small businesses need different types of support. Ranging from laboratory spaces and venues for pilot operations to support in reaching relevant investors and partners. Our commitment extends to providing you with the necessary information and a well-established network, enabling us to offer tailored guidance to your specific needs. Our support encompasses beyond support to access advanced facilities, connection with corporate e.g., support your product validation, introduction to researchers and partners to overcome innovation barriers, and facilitated access to talent.
