Reshaping the Future

Let us show you what we can do now to build a happy future. This is not about the latest technologies or what robots are able to do. It is about the impact of using data for human benefits. You can see, feel, hear and experience how we can use data for a better life. Our future is not just a goal at the horizon. We can adjust the outcome in the future when we apply data not only in a responsible way but also in a disruptive way with happiness in mind. 

In the impressive chapel of the Jeronimus Academy of Data Science we bring a mixed audience of entrepreneurs, strategic board members and representatives of citizen organizations together to be inspired by how you create a successful data driven future.

A line-up of international speakers will challenge you on different subjects concerning the application of data on behalf of a better life for all inhabitants of a city, including entrepreneurs, students and employees. International insights will complete your vision on how we use data in a responsible way.
