Het Nieuwe Instituut has established the Agency for Architecture, Design and Digital Culture to cater to the needs of the professional field at large. 

Het Nieuwe Instituut has established the Agency for Architecture, Design and Digital Culture to cater to the needs of the professional field at large. With the disappearance of those institutes that represented individual design disciplines there was no essential link that could mediate between regional policymaking and the innovate force of designers and makers or coordinate Dutch entries to international manifestations for architecture, design and e-culture (or their cross-overs). The Agency fills this gap.

In addition to projects on a local and regional scale, the Agency for Architecture, Design and Digital Culture increasingly addresses the international role of the various design sectors. Since its inception, Het Nieuwe Institute has been responsible for Dutch submissions to international manifestations such as the Venice Architecture Biennale and for policy in relation to market expansion.

In 2016 the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science appointed Het Nieuwe Instituut as Coordinator for the Internationalisation of the Creative Industries with a three-part remit: a coordinating function, talent mapping and supporting international cross-overs.
