Utrecht Data School
Utrecht Data School (UDS) is a research platform and course programme in the Faculty of Humanities at Utrecht University. UDS has been researching the impact of digitization on society since 2013, through collaborations with governments, NGOs, companies, students and scientists. UDS focuses specifically on the themes of public administration, public media and public space, and topics such as democracy, citizenship and security are of particular importance. Through this experience, UDS has built up expertise in collecting data and analysing it in relation to cultural and social aspects.
In addition, UDS is affiliated with the university focus area of Applied Data Science and has short lines of communication with relevant experts in this framework. UDS is also a central part of the focus area Governing the Digital Society.
