Data are everywhere and therefore it has a profound effect on our society. It is becoming more and more important to put these data effectively and safely to use. Data offer opportunities across a wide number of domains, such as health science, geo science, social and behavioural science and media.  

Within Utrecht University much research is done in the field of (applied) data science. The focus area Applied Data Science brings together researchers. Only by joining forces and working interdisciplinary we can accelerate the development of data science techniques. This includes introducing data science techniques in research areas where they are not yet applied.
