UC Berkeley Presents Best Practices on Developing a Data Science Research Institutional Strategy

Infusing Data with Compute: Developing and Advancing an Institution-Wide Strategy Around Research Data Science

June 15, 2020

As the demand for data science research continues to increase, research institutions are taking a closer look at how to create an institutional strategy around data science research. UC Berkeley has been a leader in this area beginning with its Moore-Sloan Data Science Environments project. 

The Coalition for Networked Information’s spring virtual meeting featured UC Berkeley's Anthony Suen, Data Science Education Program’s Director of Programs; Kenneth Lutz, Research IT and Interim Director of UC Berkeley’s Wireless Research Center; Shawna Dark, Chief Academic Technology Officer and Executive Director of Berkeley’s Research, Teaching, and Learning; and Salwa Ismail, Associate University Librarian of Berkeley’s Digital Initiatives and Information Technology and Associate CIO to provide a panel of various perspectives on UC Berkeley’s data science research innovation and their approach to collaboration across campus to develop a comprehensive data compute strategy.
