Would you like to know how data can help you become (even) more likely to succeed and how the application of data may help you? Come to Den Bosch Data Week 2019 and experience it for yourself.


Data does not have any value if it is not applied smartly. If you do it right, you can even have products do the thinking for you or support you in your day-to-day needs. The smart application of data can make your life safer, healthier, more efficient and more sustainable. Naturally, this should always be done in a responsible manner, protecting the fundamental rights of people. The human component may never be lost sight of.

Den Bosch chooses to be a leading data city. As a data city, we use data to improve the lives of residents, visitors and entrepreneurs, with the added value of educational talent in data and in collaboration with partners from different sections of society.

As a city, we are increasingly leading in

  • building networks to work well together and share knowledge
  • the rapid achievement of success with the launch of new data initiatives and companies
  • being a pioneer in data education and prominent companies in data
  • delivering concrete products and services in which data is used in a smart way
  • still keeping our focus on people by maintaining a constant dialogue with society


The JADS (Jheronimus Academy of Data Science), the Province of Noord-Brabant and the Municipality of ’s-Hertogenbosch are the founding partners of the DBDW. The Ministry of the Interior is our partner in terms of the social dialogue and ethics concerning data.

Together with various companies and network organisations such as Avans Hogeschool, SAP, Brand Loyalty, SPARK, BIM, Grasso/Grenco and the Driven by Data platform, we are organising a complete week of events about data. The number of partners for the 2019 edition can still be expanded by organisations that contribute to the quality and appeal of the programme. RTL Z is the media partner of Den Bosch Data Week 2019.


During the week, the various target groups (government, education, businesses, residents and visitors) will be offered a wide range of inspirational speakers, demonstrations and workshops across various locations in the city. Sub-themes, in which data plays an important role, are also covered, such as mobility, energy & sustainability, health, safety and agri & food.

Art & Data will also be discussed during the Data Week. The connection with the public will be organised in collaboration with cultural institutions and education through visualisation and sonification of data and discussions about the responsible use of data.

Early September, the programmes will be final, and a registration button will be placed on the website for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (excluding dinner) and Thursday. Registration is not necessary for 2 November. All programme elements are accessible free of charge. Registration is mandatory.


This year’s main theme is ‘Bring data closer and get to know all opportunities that data presents’, with corresponding sub-themes:
