About DSC

The University of Amsterdam Data Science Centre (DSC) mission is to enhance the university’s research by developing, sharing and applying data science methods and technologies.

As a coordinating hub within the UvA Library, the centre is uniquely positioned to facilitate knowledge exchange as well as the training of skills related to digital and data-driven research, and thus contributes to the innovation, diffusion and cross pollination of data science across the university.

In 2021, with help from the DSC multiple data scientists and engineers are embedded at several faculties of the University of Amsterdam. In 2022 we will increase this number via the Accelerate Programme 2022.


The DSC celebrates diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all members. The DSC values a spirit of enquiry and endurance, provides the space to keep asking questions and cherishes a diverse atmosphere of curiosity and creativity.


The DSC aims to promote data science education. These are the current data science programmes available at UvA:
