This KIA provides a strategic framework for programming knowledge and innovation in the fields of digitalisation and digital IT as part of the Mission-Driven Top Sectors and Innovation Policy (Missiegedreven Topsectoren- en Innovatiebeleid).
As the initiator and coordinator of the KIA Digitalisation, Topsector ICT is being asked more and more frequently by other sectors and other Top Sector organisations to help develop knowledge and innovation. The KIA Digitalisation serves to align separate parties’ efforts and encourage public-private partnerships, resulting in better solutions to important challenges facing the economy and society.
Lastly, the KIA Digitalisation will help to make the country more competitive in the international arena.
Framework and points of reference
The KIA Digitalisation provides a framework and useful points of reference for future ICT research and innovation for the 2024-2027 period. This KIA is part of the new Knowledge and Innovation Covenant (KIC) that was established on 2 November 2023.
Together with partners from government organisations, academia, universities of applied sciences, the business community, innovative SMEs and social organisations, we are building our future. Knowledge and innovation are key foundation stones in that process, and digitalisation and ICT are vital links.
