Partnerships

The Data Science Campus will be at the forefront of data science in the UK and beyond, and will facilitate the exchange of data science knowledge between government, industry and academic practitioners.

Such exchanges increase the use and understanding of data science within ONS and wider government by enabling access to tools, approaches and techniques developed at the leading edge of UK and international research, and enables insights and methodologies developed within the Public Sector to be shared outwards for the betterment of data science and the UK public as a whole.

In December of 2016, we announced our first UK partnership with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Alan Turing Institute and since then we have been working with a wide range of prospective university and commercial partners to explore opportunities for collaborative research and joint programmes that advance the state of data science within government and across the entire field.

We actively welcome partners from Academia, Government and Industry who wish to join us as we seek to meet the demands and challenges posed by the evolving economy, and work to push the boundaries of data science research within ONS and beyond.

If you are interested in collaborating with us, please contact us.

We look forward to working with you.

Deputy Director, Partnerships and Knowledge Exchange Data Science Campus
