We hope you like our new refreshed brand, highlighting our “Three Pillars” – the main areas where we can help you achieve great things with data.

Support to innovate

We believe that collaboration is the most effective way to break new ground using data science. That’s why we help organisations to access the academic or specialist expertise and project support they need to build effective partnerships and innovate successfully with data.  Find out more…

We’re working with industry to make sure people across sectors have the opportunity to gain the skills they need to apply ground-breaking data science in the real world. We are also helping our graduates find jobs in the industry and businesses connect into Scotland’s talent pool. Find out more…


Community and events

Scotland’s thriving data science community is already proving that the best way to fulfil our potential is to bring together people from across a range of sectors and backgrounds so they can connect, share and work together. That’s why we create opportunities for our growing community to come together.
