Holland Digital House 2020
The objective of this webinar was to highlight the roadmap of The Netherlands on its way to become one of the most innovative digital economies in the world. It has been an informative session with contributions from both the public and private sector in The Netherlands. Six inspiring speakers have provided insights in their goals, policies and activities to stimulate the Dutch Digital Economy. The impact of COVID-19 on the digital economy has been discussed, how could we better prepare on future (health) crises?
Why a Holland Digital House? There are sound reasons to develop such a partner programme in cooperation with GSMA. The Dutch Mobile Community will be able to experience an excellent profiling opportunity with the latest content, indepth discussions, extensive knowledge transfer and networking. Showcasing Dutch digitization innovations and reporting on relevant Dutch high tech initiatives and usecases. Main goal being promotion of the Dutch Digital Economy and profiling The Netherlands as a highly innovative country with the slogan “For every global challenge there is a Dutch solution”. Holland goes Digital and even more in this COVID-19 era. The impact of the Corona situation on digitization and innovation initiatives has also been addressed. Will 5G roll-out be delayed or accelerated due to COVID-19?
After a welcome by Mr. Dick van Schooneveld (VP, moderator) and the opening remarks by Mrs. Mona Keijzer (State Secretary, Ministry of Economic Affairs & Climate Policy) and Mrs. Afke Schaart (VP, Head of Europe, GSMA) five distinguished speakers have taken the floor and covered topics related to digital transformation and digital leadership: Mr. Maarten Tossings (Chair Digital Taskforce, Economic Board South-Holland), Mr. Marijn Fraanje (CIO, City The Hague), Mr. Job Voorhoeve (Digital Practice Leader, Amrop Executive Search), Mr. Jeroen Kleinjan (TMT Leader, ING Bank) and Mrs. Jeanine Vos (Executive Director, GSMA). Due to time constraints the panel discussion had to be shortened, all questions will be answered by our speakers afterwards as mentioned by moderator Mr. Dick van Schooneveld in his wrap-up of this first online edition of the Holland Digital House.
Thanks to GSMA, to our speakers and of course to all of you the Holland Digital House had a truly successful kick-off in spite of current difficult COVID-19 times!
