LIDA launched the Data Scientist Internship Programme in September 2016, as part of our commitment to developing data science capability and driving multidisciplinary data analytics research.
The nine appointed interns are currently working alongside researchers from across the University on a wide range of projects.
During two linked sessions, the first being the 8th December and the second being held on the 15th December, the interns will be presenting on their work with the opportunity for questions.
