Deputy Mayor Saskia Bruines (Knowledge Economy) has signed a declaration of intent with the Stanford Peace Innovation Lab. The university will establish itself in The Hague in 2018 with a Peace Innovation Institute.
The Peace Innovation Institute in The Hague will support international organisations with know-how, expertise, events and workshops in developing new technologies that can contribute to world peace.
Stanford chose The Hague because of the present knowledge, network and the international image of the city in the area of peace and justice.
The Peace Innovation Institute reinforces the strength of The Hague in the area of innovation in Peace, Justice and Security, already represented by UNOCHA, Humanity Hub and The Hague Security Delta. The city will get a strong connection to Stanford University and Silicon Valley, which can be interesting to companies and start-ups in the city working in sectors such as security, ICT and technology.
