Accelerate Programme

Accelerating data driven research and stimulate the hiring of data scientists and engineers across UvA.

Have you ever considered how data science could enhance the way you conduct research in your faculty? 

Through the Accelerate Programme the DSC helps support the costs of hiring within these roles. The programme is not only intended to facilitate knowledge exchange throughout the university, but also incentivise the integration of these roles into existing research activity. 

The 2021 call for proposals for the Accelerate Programme is now closed.

Six faculties were awarded funding via the Accelerate Programme

16 proposals across the following faculties were awarded funding to help fund a data scientist or engineer:

  • Amsterdam UMC 
  • Faculty of Law 
  • Faculty of Economics and Business 
  • Faculty of Humanities 
  • Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences 
  • Faculty of Science 

The successful proposals will now start the recruitment process. These data scientists and engineers will interact weekly at the UvA Library where the DSC is based. This will stimulate knowledge sharing to strengthen data driven research across the university.
