Our key research goal is to advance and enable data science research across disciplines, research institutes and industry within the Amsterdam region  

We can only fully utilise data if we have the methodologies to store, process and turn it into valuable and accessible information by analysis and modelling.

Society is becoming increasingly reliant on data and the tools and methods to acquire and analyse it. Important sources of data that are only starting to be explored come from:

  • social media,
  • full-text scientific literature,
  • video material,
  • click and interaction patterns,
  • financial transactions,
  • customer behaviour,
  • sensors and scientific instrumentation.

Being able to fully utilise data will, for example, improve healthcare quality, government efficiency, military effectiveness, steer innovation in business, and forge new scientific discoveries.
