Preparing for the growing data economy

Could your company make use of expert skills required for the rapidly growing data economy, including skills in programming, big data handling and analytics, and the latest statistical and machine learning techniques that underpin artificial intelligence?

Data intensive science has a huge, and rapidly growing, potential to influence the economic and societal health and wealth of the UK and the wider world. This potential has been clearly recognised by the universities, industries and businesses that have come together to form the Data Intensive Science Centre in the South East Physics Network, DISCnet.

DISCnet exploits the established and close interdisciplinary links between five UK-leading universities with expertise in STFC science: the Universities of Southampton, Sussex, Portsmouth, Queen Mary University of London, and Open University.

A key part of DISCnet are short placements in local data science industrial partners and non-profit organisations.

If you believe your organisation could benefit from a placement for three to six months, where some of the best talent in the South of England will address and support a real commercial challenge for your company (which we can also potentially fund), we would like to hear from you.
