Digitalisation is causing social change. This raises questions about safety, discrimination, influence and the power of technology companies. We also see that digitalisation is burdening our environment and our climate and has a major impact on the energy system.

Technology supports social issues in a responsible way

We are working on initiatives and programmes that initiate the transition to a sustainable and responsible digital region.

To ensure that technology responsibly supports social issues in the region, we are working on three initiatives that complement each other: AMdEXData Commons Collective and the Health Data Space Amsterdam. Data Commons Collective researches and develops collaborative agreements for the fair sharing of data for a societal good, AMdEX researches and develops technology to digitally capture and enforce these agreements, and the Health Data Space Amsterdam researches and implements both topics for medical data. Our programme Amsterdam Smart City is also working on responsible use of data for a sustainable living environment.
