Data Science Fund


Solutions to the biggest global problems will come from combining the knowledge of natural and social sciences.  We are creating a bold new programme of research that embeds data science across LSE.

Shaping the world?

Our Data Science Institute brings together experts from across LSE, and visitors from partner institutions and industry, to work on data focused research across a range of global challenges facing the world. These include healthcare and social policy, ethics and artificial intelligence, climate change and the environment, digital societies, finance economics and markets.

Join in

You can help to realise the potential of combining data science with social sciences and emerging technology. In contributing to our Data Science Impact Fund, you will fund the teams, research and equipment needed to pioneer new solutions to the world’s biggest challenges.
