Projects

The Campus delivers projects for the Office for National Statistics (ONS), government and wider UK and international organisations.

As a cross-government data science centre of excellence, we are developing world-class data science for public good. We experiment with cutting-edge tools and techniques to deliver better insights for decision-makers to help shape government policy.

Our projects have provided valuable new insights for the ONS and other stakeholders across government and beyond, and our programme spans the economy, trade, the environment and society.
