​Data Science Center in Health

DASH is the Data Science Center in Health of the UMCG: a knowledge hub, community and facilitator​ in the area of health data science. The aim of DASH is to advance data science in health. It does this by supporting and facilitating researchers and their research projects.​

DASH welcomes all researchers and has a specific focus on ‘frontrunners’: researchers with innovative research ideas. DASH provides assistance in overcoming major challenges that researchers face in data science and research IT facilities; problems that emerge during innovative research approaches that push the boundaries of what is currently possible. Often researchers cannot solve such problems on their own and need the help of other experts or partners. For instance regarding ethical, legal and societal is​sues (ELSI) that arise whilst performing ground-breaking data intensive research; coupling of data sets; developing and implementing advanced methods of data analysis; coming up with next level IT-solutions; or finding partners within the UMCG, business, academia or society. DASH is the community to discuss these issues and help solve them. DASH also showcases existing best practice solutions, on the way to UMCG-wide implementation.

DASH is a facilitator for all UMCG-researchers, but especially for the so-called innovative ‘DASH projects’. These projects receive dedicated support from DASH. Do you want to know more about the advantages of applying for a ‘DASH projects’? See our webpage ‘DASH projects'.

​DASH is still in development: we invite and welcome ​researchers to provide input for the further development of DASH. Get in touch with us by sending an email to: Contact. Also see News / Info​ for upcoming events.​​
