Workshop | Data-Driven Innovations

During this workshop, the Commit2Data community in the field of energy will be brought together with the Energy and Sustainability Working Group of the Dutch AI Coalition. As the Commit2Data program comes to an end, the research and innovations that have been generated by the projects are worth further exploration. This workshop will present the research findings from projects focused on energy and big data. The aim is also to identify the questions for follow-up research, the next innovations, and the steps for implementation.

By bringing together experts, policymakers, companies, and students interested in learning from these insights on big data applications, it’s possible to bridge the gap between research, work, and education, with an eye towards new collaborative opportunities.

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.

Become a participant

The Netherlands AI Coalition is convinced that active collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders is essential to stimulate and connect initiatives in Artificial Intelligence. Within fields of expertise and with other stakeholders in the ecosystem to achieve the most significant result possible in the development and application of AI in the Netherlands. Representatives from the business community (large, small, start-up), government, research and educational institutions and civil society organisations can participate.
