Founded in 2017, the Institute of Data Science (IDS) is committed to research in data science and artificial intelligence, collaborating across disciplines, institutions, and sectors. The goal of our research is to accelerate scientific discovery, improve clinical care and well-being, and to strengthen communities. We specialise in machine learning, decentralised applications related to biomedical data, as well as promoting the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) principles. With FAIR as a foundation, we have an emerging focus on responsible data science by design.

IDS aims to tackle impactful research problems through multidisciplinary teams involving students, researchers, partners, and stakeholders inside and out of the university. We aim to train the next generation of data scientists to be even more collaborative and interdisciplinary.
What can we learn about the health claims that manufacturers make about foods by applying data science?
The NWO has awarded two grants to projects of the Maastricht Law and Tech Lab under its Idea Generator Programme.
