Health

Together with our partners, we are working towards the goal that all residents in our region will be able to enjoy two extra healthy years of life. We can achieve this by preventing illnesses and by ensuring any medical interventions are as personalised as possible. We are developing smart and sustainable solutions in the region; embracing scientific research, data analysis and the use of AI; and implementing innovative public health interventions.

Our region is internationally renowned as a powerhouse in medical sciences and their applications, as well as in data science and AI. By intelligently combining these skills and knowledge, we will develop faster and more effective innovations that improve our health and wellbeing. And by focusing on upscaling, all collaborating companies, healthcare institutes, governmental parties and residents can together make the transition from ‘healthcare consumer’ to ‘healthcare provider’. At the heart of this shift will be a focus on disease prevention through the use of smart applications and data analysis.

Ambitions for our Health theme

Our ambition is that by 2025, residents of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area will have gained two extra healthy years of life. We are committed to living healthier, for longer. Specific focus points to help achieve this include working toward a clean and healthy environment, and smart use of data and artificial intelligence.
