About ICAI

The Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI) is a national initiative focused on joint talent and technology development between academia, industry and government in the area of artificial intelligence. The Netherlands has the talent, the world-class research and the longstanding tradition in AI education to be one of the world’s top ranked countries in terms of innovation power. ICAI brings these positive forces together in a unique national initiative.

ICAI’s innovation strategy is organized around labs, these are multi-year strategic collaborations with a focus on technology and talent development. In the labs, ICAI’s partners create innovative AI-applications, attract and develop talent, and distribute AI-knowledge for companies and organizations in the form of technology products and tools, train corporate employees through dedicated courses, and simultaneously maintain a connection with other world-level science centers. ICAI also facilitates further impact by facilitating start-up and spin-outs.

ICAI is an open national network of academic, industrial and governmental partners, with seven locations in the Netherlands. At present, ICAI has sixty-two partners who have founded twenty-one research labs, with more to come.

In addition to its labs, ICAI is developing specific talent programs, including a joint appointment program to attract academic staff and a launch pad program to help talent trained in one of the ICAI labs find their next opportunity in the Netherlands (stay tuned).

The ICAI Head Office is responsible for the day-to-day business; it is located at Amsterdam Science Park.

The Advisory Board of ICAI consists of representatives from science, industry and government.
