ABOUT US

DSC IN PROFILE

The DSC was founded as an interdisciplinary institute for data science at the University of Bremen in October 2019 with the support of the state of Bremen. The DSC connects domain specialists from economics, natural sciences, humanities, engineering, life sciences or sociology with methodological experts from mathematics, statistics, and computer sciences to facilitate the emergence of cross-cutting research projects and fields.

Through this integrative approach, the DSC overcomes disciplinary boundaries and stimulates cooperative research at the intersection of methodology, theory, and application. Therefore, the DSC promotes data-driven research across all disciplines and strengthen the role of data science at the University of Bremen.



OUR VISION

To position the University of Bremen as a pioneer and leader in the field of data science in order to foster the impactful use of data for the benefit of society.

OUR MISSION

To promote excellent research, education, and interdisciplinary collaboration in the field of data science, to explore new application domains, and to enable a transfer of knowledge from research to society and industry.

OUR THREE PILLARS

The DSC is built on the three pillars RESEARCH, QUALIFICATION and SERVICES, with close interdisciplinary collaboration across all faculties of the University of Bremen serving as foundation.

Within the pillar research, the DSC advances interdisciplinary research in data science to break down the boundaries between domains and create a supportive, collaborative research culture. The pillar qualification reflects the DSC’s commitment to strengthen data science competencies at the University of Bremen and train the next generation by developing data science education and training programs. As part of the pillar services, the DSC offers computing capacities to perform computation-intensive data analyses in research and education as well as methodological and technical support for the implementation of algorithms.

The three pillars are interlinked and progress in one of them will be beneficial for the others. In particular, the cross-faculty collaboration between researchers from application-oriented disciplines and scientists from basic or technological fields will provide new impetus to all three pillars and strengthen data science at the University of Bremen.

OUR TEAM

The team of the DSC consists of the institute's spokesperson Prof. Dr. Rolf Drechsler, the deputy spokesperson Prof. Dr. Andreas Breiter, the coordinator Dr. Lena Steinmann, and the research associate Christopher Metz. Together we expand the activities of the DSC and are available for further information.
