As the Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC), we are convinced that active collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders in one’s own application area as well as with other stakeholders in the ecosystem, is essential to stimulate and connect initiatives in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Hence, to achieve the highest possible impact for the development and application of AI in the Netherlands, the NL AIC offers two different participation variants: a full-participation or an introductory one.
In this variant, you as an organisation are actively involved in the activities of the NL AIC. That means you receive information about all NL AIC activities, invitations to meetings and events, and you also have access to detailed information about the activities and projects of the various working groups. You have the opportunity to participate in projects, exchange experience with other participants, and have access to collaborations among participants too. In this variant, you have a direct influence on the content and implementation of projects of the coalition and the related public/private cooperation projects.
The fee for this membership is 1000 euros per annum or 15,000 euros per annum for companies with a revenue larger than 25 million euros). Besides, there are attractive conditions for group participation and start-ups as well (inquiries via NL AIC). In addition to the membership costs, active involvement in an NL AIC activity is requested.
This variant is particularly interesting for small organisations that would like to know more about AI in general and what AI can do for them. As a participant, you have access to general information for a maximum period of six months, you can participate in a working group, and you are welcome at events.
This membership fee is 500 euros. If you decide to switch to a full participation after six months, this amount will be deducted from the total membership fee.
Only by proactively deploying AI, we can as the Netherlands, help determine how AI is applied to social and economic challenges and, as a consequence, benefit from it. AI is not a goal in itself, but a powerful tool for maintaining and expanding our international competitive position and solving economic and social issues. The ambition of the Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC) is to stimulate and connect initiatives in AI together with its participants. To this end, it is vital to accelerate, scale-up and gain efficiency and effectiveness on a national level.
To guide this, we have drawn up several criteria for participation:
– Participants jointly ensure that their initiatives contribute to one or more of the strategic objectives of NL AIC via working groups:
– Participants make an in-kind and in-cash contribution to the NL AIC and actively participate.
– Participants commit themselves to the NL AIC governance structure, participation agreement and program to strengthen AI for the Netherlands based on:
– Participants are legal entities established in the Netherlands (not private persons) that demonstrably have activities (research, innovation, education, application) or plans that contribute to the development of the Netherlands in the area of AI.
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.
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.
