VU Campus Center
Artificial Intelligence & Health


The purpose of the VU Campus Center for AI & Health is to fuel collaborations on the VU campus, to increase the visibility of the research in the AI & Health domain, with the ultimate goal to improve health and healthcare by developing, implementing and evaluating AI technologies.

 “The VU Campus Center brings together a unique multidisciplinary expertise in the area of AI and Health.”
Prof. Mark Hoogendoorn

Across Amsterdam the center will be connected to other partners (such as the UvA, CWI, etc.) through collaboration platforms such as Amsterdam Medical Data Science and Smart Health Amsterdam and the overarching collaboration in the Amsterdam AI Coalition themed “AI:Technology for People”. The position of the center in the context of these collaborations (non exhaustive) can be seen below.
