The ICAI (Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence) has been involved ever since the NL AIC was founded as a leading nationwide network of scientific AI collaborations, It involves cooperation with a focus on strengthening AI knowledge and retaining AI skills in the Netherlands, and it is intended inter alia to lead to further growth in the number of public-private ICAI labs. The ICAI concentrates on joint development of AI technology in a wide variety of application areas. Further expansion and rollout of the network of ICAI labs is an essential element of the national AI network that the NL AIC is creating together with its partners. The main thrusts of the collaboration are then the following:

From Research and Innovation

• Encouraging the development of new labs, both public-private and purely public.
• Collaborating on setting up activities centred on the current and future labs and on research and innovation activities that come from the NL AIC itself.
• Connecting the ICAI’s role in maintaining the network of ICAI labs to other initiatives for strengthening the research and innovation ecosystem, together with the NL AIC.
• Working together on criteria for ICAI labs and on generalizing them in the national context.

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.
