Digital Society Programme Manager
Sjoerd Meihuizen is Programme Manager for the Digital Society. This joint programme of the Dutch universities intends to create a new and appealing international profile for the Netherlands as a pioneer in the field of human-centred information technology. Our country can transform itself into a living ‘testing grounds’, enabling a rapid exploration of how we can optimally tailor new technology to suit the needs of individuals and society as a whole. Research plays a key role in this respect. A delta plan of this type for the new ‘digital society’ will give the Netherlands major social, scientific and economic opportunities.
Sjoerd worked for the Dutch Research Council (NWO) for ten years in the field of Computer Science research and for Nuffic (Diploma evaluations). He has keen interest in the Digital Humanities. Sjoerd graduated with a MA in Art History from the University of Groningen and did an exchange year at the University of Minnesota and PhD work at UCLA.
