Code for NL arranges fellowships for technically savvy people within governments and related organisations to work on practical solutions for societal problems.
Governments face huge challenges these days. Citizens desire more (and better) information and want to use innovative services. With Code for NL, The Netherlands joins a worldwide network of civic innovators who are helping to transform their own communities by using technology to improve government and foster citizen engagement.
In a one-year programme these technologists will work closely together with all stakeholders in a problem. They involve citizens, civic organisations, and civil servants to use technology in a practical way.
Waag Society helps in creating and implementing a programme within organisations.
