The Data Lab is Scotland’s innovation centre for data and AI. The Data Lab was founded in 2014 as part of Scotland’s Innovation Centres programme. Our purpose is to change lives and make Scotland a more productive economy and a sustainable society by transforming how we use data. We foster innovation through collaboration, build skills and grow talent, and champion Scotland’s data science community; funding almost 1,000 graduate students and generating £319 million anticipated increase in business turnover and over 1,350 jobs to date. We want Scotland to become a global leader in applying data and AI innovation and skills development that benefits our economy and society. Our vision for the next ten years is to create the world’s most impactful data community: one where cross-sector conversations, creativity and collaboration ignite and sustain the sparks of ground-breaking ideas, products and societal advances.
