Data hubs

Six regional organizations are currently working together in the Dutch Coalition Data Innovation Hubs, brought together by Commit2Data and Surf, who are committed to data, data research and knowledge sharing. Part of the regional parties is affiliated with universities. Other parties stem from, for example, initiatives from economic boards. The coalition meets several times a year to share knowledge on various themes, such as data sharing, contact between research and business, big data and SMEs.

The six regional organizations are:
