The Center for Creation, Content and Technology is a collaboration between institutes and groups of several faculties of the University of Amsterdam and the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, which work together on a project basis in the field of content and technology. The aim is to combine the strengths of these groups in research and education in a unique multi-disciplinary setting, and preferably in collaboration with the (creative) industries in and around Amsterdam. See about for more information.
