The Data Lab

Helping industry across Scotland to capitalise on a growing market opportunity in data science

The Data Lab enables industry, the public sector and world-class academics to innovate and develop new data science capabilities in a collaborative environment. The Data Labs core mission is to generate significant economic, social and scientific value from data for Scotland.

Big data represents a huge growth opportunity with 90% of all the data in the world created in the past two years. Companies that use ‘big data’ are five times as likely to make decisions faster than market peers; and organisations using advanced data are twice as likely to be sector leaders. We estimate there is £17 billion of new revenue opportunity within Scotland alone for new data solutions and we can help your organisation benefit from these opportunities.
