Digital innovation at Arcadis


Our people work on projects that really transform the way citizens work, live and move in the cities of the future. Digital innovation plays an important role in this space. We are engaged in various initiatives to help strengthen our digital transformation. We are continuously expanding our digital and data expertise, for example, through the acquisition of the software and analytics firm SEAMS. We are also activating digital leadership throughout the company: we have established a knowledge partnership with Vlerick Business School. This includes a three-day Digital Leadership Program, tailored to accelerate the digital transformation within our business and industry. And these are just some of the initiatives that are part Arcadis’ city-centric vision and strategy of continued digital innovation and growth.


We have to establish both internal and external initiatives to identify and carefully grow ‘the new’. We are serious about being a digital frontrunner in our industry and therefore we have to develop certain value propositions ourselves, as well as co-create and buy into what happens at the frontier through early stage ventures.
