Work on our spearheads together with us
Empowering the Resilient Society
Our society faces issues the consequences of which are difficult to fathom. Markets and economies are connected worldwide, digital technology plays an ever more important role, climate change is being felt and the aging population and migration affect the make-up of communities. How do we continue to safeguard solidarity, justice, and humanity?
Enhancing Health and Wellbeing
Improving people's health and wellbeing over an increasingly longer lifetime is a major social challenge of our time. In order to enhance health and wellbeing, we have to take decisions that not only achieve progress in the short term, as is often the case, but also in the long term. This is the line of approach of the Impact program regarding Health and Wellbeing.
Creating Value from Data
A considerable part of our daily behavior is stored in large databases. The amount of data that we generate is increasing exponentially. Moreover, the processing power of computers is growing as well as the power of algorithms tot analyze data. This creates new opportunities but also great risks.
