NU-buildingLast January, IVM moved to its new premises: the spacious and sustainable NU building. Due to the lockdown we have been able to enjoy it for just two months, but since June we are allowed to enter it again (with limited numbers). We hope to be able soon to receive our guests here as well.

Our new address is: De Boelelaan 1111, 1081 HV, Amsterdam.
