JADS: part of a data driven community

JADS is a hotspot where researchers, data science students, start-ups, scale-ups and experts of the industry collaborate in developing cutting-edge, real-world solutions. Our ambition goes beyond being an academic leader in the field of data science.

Our aim is to play a key role in building a new ecosystem and accelerate the data driven economy in The Netherlands. We do this by connecting data science and entrepreneurship in many ways. From educating students and professionals to organizing events, to accelerating data driven start ups.

We are connected to initiatives and consortia like the

  • Data Driven AgriFood Future Alliance
  • Nationale AI Coalitie
