Inspirationlab: Dutch Innovators for Peace
Technology can drive peace and justice. Innovative solutions increasingly make use of new types of data, mobile technologies and social media. Big or small (data), high-tech or low-tech: the challenge is to maximise the benefits while minimising the risks that come with the so-called data revolution.
Meet the following Dutch Innovators:
• Christophe Billen (People’s Intelligence)
• Wouter Dijkstra (TracFM)
• Sjors van den Dries (Crowdsense)
• Maarten-Jan Kallen (ActivityInfo)
• Marten Schoonman (Akvo Foundation)
• Siem Vaessen (Zimmerman&Zimmerman)
