Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA)

There is a growing movement around the world to ensure the effective use of vast data collections to drive research, policy development and public good initiatives. LIDA brings together applied research groups and data scientists from all disciplines, opening up new opportunities to understand health and human behaviour and casting light on the action required to tackle a wide range of social and environmental problems.

Connecting academic research with external partners in business, government and the third sector; LIDA is matching the world class capabilities of University research with the needs and opportunities of local organisations.
