Data Science Research Programme
Universities, companies, organisations and societies are increasingly facing enormous quantities of data. It is a great challenge to transform these Big Data into knowledge, which is why Leiden University has launched a University-wide Data Science Research Programme.
The Data Science Research Programme is a partnership between all Leiden University faculties. Its core task is to develop and apply data science in the various research fields of Leiden University.
Leiden Centre of Data Science
The research programme strengthens the University’s Leiden Centre of Data Science (LCDS), opened in 2014. LCDS is the network of all Leiden researchers working on big data and developing innovative methods to effectively unlock large amounts of data.
