About us

The digital transformation is irreversible, rapid and has changed much over the past decade. Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a key role in digitisation. AI has endless applications. It is expected to have a massive socio-economic impact, and it relates to many challenges we are facing.

As part of the theme AI, Data & Digitalisation, we study together how we can contribute to these challenges in society and health care ‘with’ and ‘in’ AI, and how the global scientific world can take a permanent leading role in this field. If we do this together, and based on different disciplines, we can take huge strides. For that reason, the Erasmus University, the Erasmus medical centre and the Delft University of Technology join forces in Convergence in ‘AI, Data & Digitalisation’. Together they strengthen the regional knowledge cluster in AI.

Mission and Vision

The AI, Data & Digitalisation knowledge cluster will further expand its strong current starting position into a permanent prominent knowledge cluster with big social impact. The partners want to use this collaboration to develop into a global knowledge cluster with a focus on education, research and innovation in the field of AI, Data & Digitalisation. This will be achieved by bringing together investments, talent and partners from inside and outside the universities.

Coordination Team AI, Data and Digitalisation

The AI, Data & Digitalisation knowledge cluster is strategically led by the AI Steering Committee and managed by a coordination team with representatives from the universities.
