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.
