Who we are
Established in 2014, with major investments from the UK Research Councils and the University of Leeds, LIDA has developed state of the art physical and IT infrastructures to raise the bar in standards of data quality, access, protection and exploitation.
Over 90 research centres, programmes and projects are now based at the Institute and our infrastructure also supports in excess of £75 million research across the university.
Growing through support from a network of local and national collaborators, LIDA is becoming a major powerhouse for research, civic engagement and business growth in the North of England and beyond.
We want to advance knowledge and improve well-being and prosperity through internationally outstanding research and education in interdisciplinary data science and artificial intelligence.
