Applied Data Science Lab

Although science and education have top priority, exploratory projects with companies, governments and NGOs generate ample opportunities in terms of societal challenges, science strategy, valorisation and research collaboration. In the LIACS Applied Data Science Lab, our master's students and graduates carry out short-term exploratory studies.

Meet short-term needs

Until recently there was a mismatch between short-term company needs and the typical time horizon of research projects: a missed opportunity both for companies as well as for LIACS.

That is why we have developed the Applied Data Science Lab at LIACS. This lab is a vehicle that allows for students, graduates and Postdocs to work part time for different organisations on exciting projects, supervised and managed by LIACS top researchers.

Unique opportunity for companies and students

Education is the means to develop expertise, analytical skills and social competences in various ways. The Applied Data Science Lab provides a unique opportunity for you to learn about practical aspects of data science and for students to be inspired and to go beyond the ordinary.

Since the applied Data Science Labs’ prime purpose is to help clients explore their opportunities in data science whilst gaining working experience for the student, we charge a break even rate, plus a small markup for administrative efforts and supervision.

At the moment we are working with Greenchoice, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, university finance department, Young Capital, Volvo Ocean Race, and others.
