Accelerating data driven research and stimulate the hiring of data scientists and engineers across UvA.
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.
16 proposals across the following faculties were awarded funding to help fund a data scientist or engineer:
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.
