Information about building blocks

The Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC) collaborates to cover the necessary common knowledge and expertise in five main themes, or building blocks: Human Capital, Research and Innovation, Data Sharing, Social Acceptance and Inclusion and Start-ups and Scale-ups.

These common building blocks are essential for ground-breaking impact in social and economic application areas (or sectors), such as Energy and Sustainability, Security, Peace and Justice, Technical Industry, Education, Agriculture and Food, Defence, Healthcare, Public Services, Financial Services, Mobility, Transport and Logistics, and Culture.

Each Building Block has its working group, in which participants tackle cross-sectoral challenges. The working groups are the core source of knowledge and experience by and for their members and decide on their approach based on members’ know-how and experience.
