Data Science community

The focus area Applied Data Science builds a community of researchers who are interested in developing the field of data science. By joining forces and working interdisciplinarily, we can accelerate the development of data science techniques within Utrecht University. This includes introducing data science techniques in research areas where they are not yet applied.

Special Interest Groups

Applied Data Science is starting up interdisciplinary Special Interest Groups (SIGs) with the objective of sharing knowledge and facilitating collaboration. A SIG is a community of colleagues with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge, learning or technology where members cooperate to produce solutions in their particular field. The SIGs are open to UU researchers and other interested parties. Check out which SIG(s) might fit your needs:
