Cutting edge data science research

Data science research to create societal and economic value

The Jheronimus Academy of Data Science offers Data science research in three locations: Tilburg, Eindhoven and ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Our Data Science Research Centers enhance the relevance of academic research to business and society. Our research focuses on adding value with data science, such as data entrepreneurship and data innovation. It entails the fundamental question on how to create societal and economic value with data.

Our Application areas

Social & Digital Entrepreneurship

The field of Social and Digital Entrepreneurship, that is often referred to as Data Science and Artificial Intelligence for the Good, refers to the digital knowledge and skillset that is needed to develop and run enterprises whose primary objective is to contribute to the solution of societally relevant problems.

nature and data science

AgriFood and Nature

In order to continue to provide sustainable food for the growing world population, something must change rapidly. Data science plays a key role in the transition of the sector.

Crime & Safety

At the department Data Science in Crime & Safety we believe that data science can contribute to safer society. Therefore, we investigate and apply data science in a fair and responsible way.

Our disciplines

Data Analytics

he Data Analytics Unit (DAU) of JADS combines expertise in the domains of causal inference, social network analysis, AI, and in particular machine learning with the goal of explaining the dynamics of complex phenomena.

Data Governance

Data engineering for studying sensor networks and machine learning pipelines.

Data Entrepreneurship

Using machine learning and network analysis to study interactions in meetings, entrepreneurial pitches, social influence, interaction norms and routines.

Research Projects

JADS also participates in several (international) projects, which contribute to grand societal challenges like health, food security, smart transport and secure societies. Together with companies, government, NGO’s and other knowledge institutions, JADS works on solutions by using data.

Smart Pork Chain sensor
EngD (formerly PDEng) Agrifood & Nature

Helping to smarten up the pork production chain

Zinabu Melese is an Ethiopian PDEng student at JADS who for his doctorate research explored a wealth of data from Hendrix Genetics and the Vion Food Group in order to lay the foundations for further data integration in the production chain. The next step will be to couple data from sensors hanging in pig farms to slaughterhouse data.
