Mapping Amsterdam’s AI –Health innovation Ecosystem

In collaboration with the Unknown group, we mapped the innovation ecosystem of data sciences and artificial intelligence (AI) in health, specifically in the hotspots of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area and the Netherlands. In the healthcare domain, data sciences and AI technology are becoming increasingly important to improve the healthy life of people. We see a growing number of initiatives, parties and business that have the common goal to improve active and healthy ageing, prevent or reduce time spent ill by using data sciences and AI.

Is your data & AI healthcare organisation already on this map?

The diagram focuses on five pillars that form the basis of the data sciences and AI in health ecosystem. Below the diagram you can view highlighted businesses that already offer a solution for the health domain based on the use of data sciences and/or AI. The diagram shows the unmet needs and existing opportunities in the current ecosystem.

The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area aims to lead the field internationally with innovations to promote a healthy lifestyle and active old age. By developing innovations for sustainable care and welfare with scalable business models, the collaborating companies, healthcare providers, government and residents will make the switch from ‘healthcare consumer’ to ‘health producer’. The key to this transformation is disease prevention through smart applications of data analyses.


By 2025, the residents of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA) will be able to expect two extra healthy life years as a result of efforts on prevention through the use of data. The region will develop sustainable solutions for the health of its inhabitants by means of scientific research, data analysis and the implementation of innovative interventions.

Focal points

To achieve our aims, the Board has decided to focus efforts on the following focal points:

  • Ecosystem: strengthening and developing the health ecosystem in the AMA and strengthening the region’s international position as a European health hub
  • AI & Health: making use of the opportunities offered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) for health in the AMA, focused on establishing an AI Health Lab
