The data science club is a great opportunity for researchers, from those new to data analysis through to the field-leaders, to come together and hear about the cutting edge in data science methods and techniques being applied in research areas right across the university, the public sector and in business. Data Science is inherently multidisciplinary and collaborative - come along to share with others what you’re working on, find collaborators and develop ideas on exciting future projects.
