University of Arizona
Data Science Institute (Data7)

Pushing research boundaries through advanced computational analysis

The Data Science Institute (formerly Data7) aims to foster the next generation of data-driven research by encouraging university-wide interdisciplinary collaboration, gaining external visibility, developing industry alliances, and increasing funding for UA research.

By connecting UA researchers and aligning institutional expertise, computational resources, and infrastructure, the Data Science Institute enables investigators to ask more complex questions and achieve outcomes not easily attainable as individual investigators or within purely disciplinary teams.

Collaborate on Research

The Data Science Institute provides initial support to University of Arizona research projects by funding part-time graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, technical staff, and computational infrastructure – all working to start new collaborations or broaden existing collaborations. Preference will be given to projects that have received favorable ranking but have not received funding.

Engage with the DS Community

The Data Science Institute offers a multitude of ways to be involved with the data science community at large.  Opportunities include several formal training programs, numerous campus events, informal networking and/or being a student researcher gaining real-world experience on one of our many research projects.

Primary funding for the University of Arizona Data Science Institute (Data7) is made available from the Technology and Research Initiative Fund (TRIF) provided by the taxpayers of the State of Arizona.
