The Data Science Center Tilburg is set up as a truly multidisciplinary institution focussed on excellence. Not only for research, but also regarding education. With respect to research, the DSC/t has defined a unique research program for the coming years.
To support Tilburg’s Data Science research community, the DSC/t will pursue the following goals:
1. Establish Tilburg University as a renowned Data Science university by:
- Creating a recognizable and unique positioning and research profile of Tilburg University on the crossing point of humans and technology;
- Investments in innovative DS research (trough seed funding);
- Spreading the word through marketing and visible events and communications;
2. Effective grant management and research support on Data Science themes;
3. Establish beneficial business relations to create a Data Science ecosystem.
Rising alongside “Big Data” technology, data science has the potential to genuinely change our society for the better. But there are also huge social and business risks. To address them, universities have an important role to play. They have to lead the way by educating tomorrow’s data scientist and by solving new and existing business and societal problems. Also from a purely scientific viewpoint, the advancement of data science as a discourse of study is of great interest. New scientific methods, tools and techniques are rapidly emerging to help scientist with “data science” problems.
DSC/t will undertake research in data science, fusing scientific discourses that were until before completely isolated, viz., psychology, business, law, statistics, mathematics, computer science, information systems, cognitive science and ethics. Tilburg University (TiU) has the intention to create a research culture that focuses on excellence and discovery, high impact scientific breakthroughs essential to innovation, knowledge transfer and commercialization activities that tackle key societal issues which transcend disciplinary boundaries.
The uniqueness of the new breed of data scientist is the reason why Tilburg University is partnering with Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Together these universities have the alpha, beta and gamma competences to build a unique data science educational portfolio. Here Tilburg University brings in her strengths such as law (TILT), business analytics (from marketing to finance), econometrics & statistics, communication, cognition and health analytics. TU/e brings in its strengths on mathematics and computer science.
Data Science Jobs
Data Science Jobs is an initiative of Tilburg University. The website aims to give visitors an understanding of labor market developments within the field of Data Science. The visualization is built using various APIs. Because of the dependence on APIs we have less grip on the quality of the data.
Note: The visualization does not give a full picture of the intended field, only an estimation.
