IPN vision: Strengthening the foundations for a strong digital society

ICT is one of the pillars of modern society and ICT and society are intertwined to such an extent that they have become wholly inseparable. We are at the point at which large parts of society would be unable to function if digital systems were to fail.
In the Netherlands, funding for fundamental ICT research has been lagging behind for a long time. Structural funding for the foundations of ICT research is desperately needed to ensure a bright and sustainable future for our digital society. This is the main message of the IPN vision “Strengthening the foundations for a strong digital society”, which can be downloaded here. (Dutch version)
