And from ADS Professor Frank van Harmelen on the Responsible Data Science theme here:
One programme, seven themes
The Digital Society programme aims to secure the Netherlands a leading international position in the field of human-centred information technology, and to find solutions to global challenges. The agenda focuses on seven themes: Citizenship & Democracy, Responsible Data Science, Health & Well-Being, Learning & Education, Work & Organisations, Digital Cities & Communities and Safety & Security. In our view, the seven research programme lines offer enormous opportunities with the potential for global impact.
The Dutch universities join forces and are working together to secure the Netherlands leading international position in the field of human-centred information technology and to find solutions to global challenges.
