Launched in 2021, the Data Science Centre (DSC), part of the University Library, is a coordinating hub and facilitator for data-driven research within the University of Amsterdam.
Our mission is to enhance the university's research by developing, sharing, and promoting data science methods and technologies across faculties. The DSC strengthens data science expertise across all faculties, and propels greater innovation, diffusion and cross pollination of data science across the university.
Our history and highlights so far:
- The announcement of the DSC
- ‘Why we need the UvA Data Science Centre’
- 'Data Science is now key for all disciplines' video interview

The DSC celebrates diversity, and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all its members and partners. We value a spirit of enquiry and cherishes a diverse atmosphere of curiousity and creativity.
In our programmes and activities, we actively encourage applications and participation from women, people of colour, LGBTQI+ people, and members of other priority communities. The DSC is a supporter of the UvA’s Diversity Policy.
