Leiden Centre of Data Science

The Leiden Centre of Data Science (LCDS) is a network of researchers from different scientific disciplines, who use innovative methods to deal with large amounts of data.

Big Data is everywhere: a constantly increasing amount of data is being produced worldwide. How can we transform this ocean of data into a sea of knowledge? Data Science, a quickly rising scientific discipline, forms the answer to this question. It trains researchers to discover and analyse meaningful patterns in data, and to convert these into useful information.
