About the Digital Society

We are living in a digital society, in which every aspect of our lives is profoundly being affected by the digitalisation of data: how we communicate and socialise; how we work, learn, stay healthy and participate in politics and the economy. Digitalisation promises tremendous benefits; for better health, more efficient mobility, efficient energy use, and flourishing companies. In the Digital Society programme, leading researchers from all fourteen universities in the Netherlands are working together to address the many pressing questions raised by the emergence of a digital society.
