The future of a data-driven society; perspectives from the Netherlands and Germany

UM and Dutch Embassy host Berlin Science Week event

Maastricht University (UM) is the only Dutch university to have organised an event together with the Dutch Embassy during the famous Berlin Science Week. The theme was ‘The future of a data-driven society; perspectives from the Netherlands and Germany.’ The reason for the event was the increasing importance of transnational collaboration in the field of big data and artificial intelligence. Dutch and German speakers emphasised the impact of digitalisation on our society and the potential of artificial intelligence in the European context.  The EU will soon present a strategy to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness in this field.
