Networked Information: Solving complex societal issues with smart ICT innovations

ICT is essential to our society. A new information infrastructure is emerging whereby citizens, industry and government will communicate with each other in new ways and will fully employ open data. The impact of this on many societal and economic processes will be considerable, though as yet unknown.

TNO will investigate and stimulate the introduction of new applications of media, supporting government and industry in identifying and applying new communication possibilities. The main challenge is to enable the information society to develop in such a way that it is not only sustainable but can also boost productivity as well as solve a number of social problems without any loss of confidence in ICT.

The innovating power of ICT enables us to do things differently: more efficiently, better, faster, smarter and more sustainably. Smart ICT innovations can help solve complex societal issues like climate change, demographic ageing, scarcity, education, mobility, care and safety. In fact, the smart application of ICT is a precondition for this.
