Global Goals Jam Amsterdam

Featured image

Are you interested in sustainability & design? Do you also enjoy working in interdisciplinary teams? Then this is your chance to participate in the Global Goals Jam 2021, register here.

On September 17 & 18 the Green Office HvA is organizing the Global Goals Jam in joint effort with the Digital Society School and the UNDP. During these two days participants worldwide will work in multidisciplinary teams, in order to create short- term interventions for local challenges using a design-thinking toolkit.

In this 2021 edition we focus on the topic of the century: Climate change. We have subcategorized this immense theme, into three sub-categories.

1. Climate Justice
How do we shift the focus on greenhouse gasses and melting ice caps into a civil rights movement with the people and communities most vulnerable to climate impacts at its core? How do we make sure that sustainability is not exclusive?

2. Beyond human-centered design
What will happen if non-human actors are our main priority in our design activities? How will design processes and ideas change when we take a nature-centered perspective?

3. Regenerative cities
How do we close the loops of our urban systems and communities? And how could we design our cities as ecological systems that are not only sustainable but also contribute to the economy as a whole?

Let’s partner up.
We’re always looking for partners who can support us in the organization, below are some examples as to how you can contribute. Reach out to exlore the benefits this partnership can bring you!

- A challenge within your organisation related to the themes.
- Speaker who can introducte the challenges on the kick-off on September 17.
- A jury to evaluate the pitches at the end of the event on September 18.
- Catering contributions.
-Professional documentation of the event.

Your own proposal is also very welcome!

Register here for the Global Goals Jam 2021
Do you have a question? Don’t hesitate to send an e-mail to!

Who should win the Dutch Applied AI Award?

Featured image

Last year, during the Month of the AAI in November, the Centre of Expertise Applied Artificial Intelligence (AUAS - Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences) presented the Dutch Applied AI Award for the first time. This year we are back for a second edition. The award is part of the Computable Awards and is for suppliers of AI solutions, start-ups in the AI field and good examples of the implementation of AI.

This award is jointly organized with AUAS, Computable and podcast De Dataloog . You can nominate an individual or organisation, based on a project you think has stood out in the past 12 months. The projects may have been particularly successful, innovative or extensive.

You can nominate until 16 August 2021

The winner will be announced on 2 November 2021 during a spectacular show in the Jaarbeurs Utrecht. Last year, healthcare platform DEARhealth won the Dutch Applied AI award. Who will walk away with the prize this year? 🙌🏻

About the Computable Awards

This will be the 16th year in a row that Computable will present the Computable Awards in November 2021. These prizes are awarded to companies, projects and individuals who, according to Computable readers, have clearly distinguished themselves in the past year.

An independent jury of experts will select five nominees for each award from the nominated parties. The ranking by the jury and the number of votes from Computable readers each determine half of which nominee will receive the award in November. The number of times a party is nominated for a nomination does not play a role, but the quality of the substantiation and information about the project mentioned does.

Comenius Leadership Fellow grant to make AUAS students AI-ready

Featured image

The Centre of Expertise Applied AI of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) has been awarded a Comenius Leadership Fellow grant of €500,000 for the AI4Students project. Over the next three years, the project headed by Professor of Responsible AI Nanda Piersma intends to use the Comenius grant to equip AUAS students for a future in which artificial intelligence (AI) will play an increasingly important role.

The assessment committee of the Netherlands Initiative for Education Research (NRO) selected the project from a total of 15 applications and praised AI4Students for its innovative character and the expected benefits for students, lecturers and the professional field. “Because of the social relevance of the topic, the committee is confident that the outcomes will be valuable to students and lecturers as well as the professional field.”

AI-ready upon graduation

AI4Students is a project that should have an impact in all faculties of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. “We would like to ensure that all AUAS students are AI-ready by the time they graduate, not just with a general acquaintance with AI, but AI specifically geared to their field of study,” Piersma explains. “So it’s not about them studying with us first to become an accountant or physiotherapist, for example, and then having to take an additional training course as soon as they start their job. Instead, they should already be thinking with us about how AI is going to affect their job.”

The Comenius Leadership Fellow 2021 grant will enable Piersma to start fulfilling that ambition over the next three years. “What we want to do is start performing an AI impact scan for 9 degree programmes,” Piersma explains. “In what way is artificial intelligence going to impact a professional field? How will this affect what professionals need to be able to do, and what does that mean for the degree programme itself?”
