InnovatingNL – EDITION 2017

Third successful edition of InnovatingNL in The Hague

The third edition of InnovatingNL, with as theme The future of your connected world took place on 9 March 2017.

Around 100 delegates, executives and senior staff from different national and international organisations were present.

Several questions were covered during the event, such as:

• How do I generate maximum value from all that data?
• Can I depend on connectivity?
• Is the existing system of property rights sufficient, or do we need new protection of value?
• Which are the impediments from IP, Regulatory, Data Protection, Competition and Liability perspective?
• Where do the business opportunities lie?

All of these issues were discussed during interactive parallel sessions, and were supported by red or green voting cards and throwable microphones which stimulated audience engagement in an innovative way.

Evelyn Tjon-En-Fa and Marc van Wijngaarden held a welcome speech. The keynote speaker was TomTom’s George de Boer, Lead of Connected Car Initiatives.

The event was then split into two parallel sessions; one covered the topic Connecting everything, recording everything and the other one was about Monetizing on Data. Feyo Sickinghe and Jorn van Steenis were the moderators for the two parallel sessions and there were three business experts present: TomTom’s George de Boer, Fox-IT’s Christian Prickaerts and Baseline’s Edoardo Monopoli.

During the Connecting everything, recording everything session, partners Henriette Picot (Germany) and Ronald Hendrikx (UK) gave an overview of the current IoT landscape. Their presentation was followed by partner Marjolein Geus and senior counsel Frank Simons who discussed how the National and European rules and regulations affect the development of connected solutions. The first parallel session was finished by partners Quirine Tjeenk Willink and Evelyn Tjon-En-Fa. They talked about data protection, liability and insurance.
