In a rapidly changing environment, the Province of North Brabant - like many other large organizations - faces a major challenge in keeping up with the rapid succession of data-related challenges and opportunities. The organization is confronted with various issues. How can policymakers and data experts be brought together most effectively? How can data visualization be used most efficiently? How do you handle the ethical aspects of data and digital transformation, especially with the introduction of the mandatory algorithm register? And above all, how do you ensure that new data opportunities continue to be discovered and the quality of data is guaranteed while dealing with all the other challenges?
During this Vision Dinner, Marcel Thaens, CIO at the Province of North Brabant, will delve deeper into the projects of the Province of North Brabant on the topics just described. There will be a lot of emphasis on dialogue after the presentation. You are most welcome to participate as a peer!
