The Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC), formed in October 2019, is a collaborative effort involving government, businesses, educational institutions, and civil society. Its goal is to position the Netherlands as a leader in AI knowledge and applications, impacting at least ten sectors within three years. NL AIC advocates for an integrated approach to embed AI as a system technology, emphasizing urgency, proactiveness, learning, stakeholder involvement, and societal discourse.
A key initiative of NL AIC is the AiNed programme, aiming to propel Dutch companies and public institutions in essential AI advancements. With broad support and a €204.5 million allocation from the National Growth Fund, the AiNed programme is set to make a significant impact.
