Data Science

The University of Leiden’s Data Science Research Programme brings together data science with all other academic domains. It makes the unique university data collections available.

Today, more data than ever before are gathered in all scientific fields. Data that, if opened up, could provide researchers with tremendous amounts of useful information.

Joint initiative of seven faculties

The Data Science Research Programme is a joint effort of all seven faculties of the University of Leiden. PhD students are playing key roles within the programme. In total, at least 21 PhD candidates will be appointed. They will work on the development and application of data science in various fields of research at Leiden University.
