Launch of the University's Big Data Community

27 Nov 2013

Join us at our launch event: Building the Big Data Community at Manchester on 9 December at Chancellors.

Big Data is one of the ‘eight great technologies' that are driving funding over the next few years and The University of Manchester has internationally recognised strengths in Big Data (including linked data and open data) across a range of faculties.

On Monday, 9 December, Manchester Informatics is launching the Big Data Community, in order to bring together these research strengths and to promote interdisciplinary collaboration in all forms of data research. The intention is to improve the University's responses to funding calls in Big Data and help to raise Manchester’s profile as a leading centre for Big Data research.

Our first event, 'Building the Big Data Community at Manchester', will seek to map out the landscape of Big Data research taking place across the university, begin working towards building interdisciplinary relationships and seek to showcase our strengths to external organisations.

We would very much encourage researchers from all disciplines to join us.
