EIRICT meeting on:
National Science Agenda (NWA), Topsectors HTSM and HTSM/ICT, and roadmaps Data Science/Big Data and Smart Industry
April 06, 2016.

Recently, the Kenniscoalitie has published the Nationale Wetenschapsagenda (NWA). Since this document and the associated website do not yet provide a concrete agenda for scientific research for the coming years, the Kenniscoalitie has installed 16 "Route Workshops" to take care of this. Each of these Route Workshops, which are currently ongoing, covers a specific topical domain.

Next to the NWA, the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda ICT 2016-2019 (KIA ICT) was published some months ago by Team ICT, as a result of an assignment from minister Kamp of the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the context of the Topsectoren Policy of the Dutch Government. The KIA ICT defines four action lines, the most prominent of which is Commit2Data, a proposal for a Public-Private Partnership for a multi-annual research- and innovation program on Big Data and Data Science.

Another topic that is high on the agendas for research and innovation and that relies heavily on the ICT domain is Smart Industry. A number of Dutch bodies and institutions have jointly defined an Actie Agenda Smart Industry.

Both Big Data / Data Science and Smart Industry are also addressed in two Route Workshops around the NWA, with the aim to arrive at research agenda’s for these domains, which may constitute the basis for calls for research proposals in the coming years.

In this lunch meeting we provided information about:

The objective of the meeting was to provide insight in the state of affairs at that moment and to discuss the involvement of TU/e in the processes that had the potential to shape the national research agendas and calls in these domains for the coming years.
The agenda for the meeting was:

The state of affairs regarding the involvement of TU/e in the NWA Route Workshops (status dd. 2016-03-29) is reflected in the following document: TU/e participation in NWA Route Workshops: State of Affairs.

By June 1st, 2016, each of the NWA Route Workshops has to deliver its result to the Kenniscoalitie.
