Welcome to the UA Data Science Institute (Data 7)

Welcome to the UA Data Science Institute (Data 7)

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. The Data Science Institute is also connected with the UA Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science (TRIPODS) effort, focused on the theoretical foundations of Data Science. The Data Science Institute actively coordinates and communicates training activities in cooperation with the Data Science Resources & Training (DSRT) group.

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.
