Anno Bunnik (b. 1982) is a policy adviser for The Digital Society, a project in which the Dutch universities are working together to give the Netherlands a new and appealing international profile: that of a leading nation in the field of people-oriented information technology. Our country can transform itself into a living ‘testing grounds’, enabling a rapid exploration of how we can optimally tailor new technology to suit the needs of individual citizens and society as a whole. Research plays a key role in this respect. A master plan of this type for the new ‘digital society’ will give the Netherlands major social, scientific and economic opportunities.
Alongside his role at the VSNU, Anno is a PhD candidate at the University of Groningen, where he is examining the impact of Big Data and digitisation on law enforcement agencies. He is also co-author of Big Data Challenges (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016). Anno previously studied at Utrecht University and King’s College London. He has also worked for various research centres and published articles on politics and security for newspapers and online media.
