Joost Plattel

As a data-strategist I help organisation and people discover the value that is hidden in their data. I do this by converting raw data to useful infographics and reports. I also explore the possibilities of sensoria and hardware to create interactive (media) products.

As a co-founder of the Quantified Self Europe Conference and Quantified Self Amsterdam meetup group I facilitate moments of knowledge that bridges networks within the startup/healthcare/data/information/online graph.

Lastly, a third part of what I do is more creative. Together with my twin I VJ under the name: [http://hoofdbeelden.nl](http://hoofdbeelden.nl/). Instead of music however we VJ with real-time generated data.

Which other Creative Sectors has the SME worked with?
Mobile & Social Media, Games, Multimedia & Web, Open Data

Which other Growth Sectors has the SME worked with?
Healthcare (Life Sciences & Medical), Education, ICT

Were any relationships rewarding?

The DIY movement and Health(care) were rewarding because of the possible combination and mostly because of underused space. Even though Health is strict space, the development of new and open-source hardware is interesting to them. As a data-strategist I facilitate a open conversation to combine the two different fields.

How does the SME think it could benefit from other sectors' input?

I like to explore and find interesting things to combine to expand my network and knowledge. Because other sectors are out of scope doesn’t mean they are inaccessible. Having a broad network would be the first benefit for me.

What can the SME offer other sectors?

As data is everywhere in sectors that use technology, I think it would be a benefit for both side to explore what kind of (open) value could be created by turning the data into information into knowledge.

To what extent would the SME be prepared to share information?

I live by open-source, this means that sharing information is default. Algorithms, data visualisation and other things I develop are open.

How would the SME describe its potential for cross innovation?

An outsiders look into unknown processes with a interesting turn of technology. I would like to create value based upon technology that is applied to a unknown field

Out of the 11 Cross Innovation Partner Cities, are there any particular cities with which the SME would like to form a new relationship?

Are there any particular organisations outside the SMEs home country, with which it would like to connect?
