ICAI Launch Pad

Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI) has initiated the Launch Pad to retain talent in the AI and Data Science ecosystem.

At the moment, many of the trained PhD students go (back) abroad, without actually being aware of the possibilities and favorable living conditions in the Netherlands. By actively acting on this and also approaching PhD students abroad, we can inform talent about opportunities in the Netherlands and raise awareness about the Dutch labor market.

To be able to achieve this goal, ICAI has initiated the Launch Pad together with Growth Accelerator and the Dutch AI Coalition with the aim to connect AI talent with organisations in the Dutch ecosystem by providing a matchmaking process between AI-PhD students and Dutch companies looking for AI talent.

ICAI believes that the Netherlands offers great opportunities in the field of AI for our top AI experts. At the moment they see that it can be challenging to find the right expert, where PhD students get offers from abroad. ICAI would like to introduce the PhD students to these organisations in the Dutch ecosystem with exciting challenges where they can make a difference. The goal of this questionnaire is to find companies who are interested in this matchmaking process and are looking for the connection with AI PhD students.
