About us

The Cambridge Centre for Data-Driven Discovery (C2D3) brings together researchers and expertise from across the academic departments and industry to drive research into the analysis, understanding and use of data science. The Centre is funded by a series of collaborations with partners in business and industry which have an interest in using data science for the benefit of their customers and their organisations.

With unprecedented access to increasing volumes of data, our research ranges from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to data science applications across all six University Schools of Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Clinical Medicine, Humanities and Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Technology.

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply data science to solve challenging problems for society.

C2D3 supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
