The port-maritime-sector in the Netherlands is globally competitive and an important driver of the Dutch economy. It is important that the sector is autonomously able to apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) and further develop the necessary knowledge and skills in this field. The working group’s ambition for the next five years is to boost the development of data licensing and AI in the port-maritime domain. Among other things by maintaining good contacts with the sector, developing a vision and strategy for common challenges, and supporting promising propositions. The Municipality of Rotterdam, InnovationQuarter, Netherlands Maritime Technology (NMT), TU Delft and the Port of Rotterdam have made a first start. Together with the participants of the NL AIC, they want to take the next steps in the coming period. These topics will be discussed during the webinar:

– In which areas does the working group intend to play a role for the sector.

– The strategic framework (which developments does the workgroup want to stimulate).

– What role does the working group envisage, and what role can participants play?

Building blocks

The NL AIC collaborates on the necessary common knowledge and expertise, resulting in five themes, also called building blocks. Those are important for a robust impact in economic and social sectors.


AI is a generic technology that is ultimately applicable in all sectors. For the development of knowledge and experience in the use of AI in the Netherlands, it is essential to focus on specific industries that are relevant to our country. These industries can achieve excellent results, and knowledge and experience that can be leveraged for application in other sectors.
