The Jheronimus Academy of Data Science is a unique opportunity for Brabant to partner with academia and help the region fully benefit from the ongoing digitalization of society at large.
Black gold of the future
This digitalization is responsible for the production of previously unheard of volumes of information. Often cited as being the ‘black gold of the future’, data offers innumerable opportunities for the development of new economic propositions for large and small businesses, as well as for startups. Whether it’s data on the use of products, stats on machines, clients, health, groups of people, traffic or energy consumption: data is set to change the economy in the decades to come.

As partner in the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, we aim to further enhance the competitive position of Brabant and offer solutions to the region’s challenges: healthy aging, rural development, sustainable energy and smart mobility.
This investment in research, development and valorization in the field of Data Science fits our ambitions to strengthen the knowledge and education infrastructure in Brabant and promote the region as the ‘Europe’s heart of smart solutions’. Additional investments in the topmost segment of education and innovation will be key to jobs creation in the region.
The region’s financial support for the redevelopment of the iconic Mariënburg Convent building in ‘s-Hertogenbosch - where the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science will be located - ensures this historical building gets an innovative and fitting new designation.
