The Data Lab Logo

The Data Lab is Scotland’s Innovation Centre for data and AI. Our mission is to help Scotland maximise value from data and lead the world to a data-powered future. We are here to accelerate the journey by fuelling innovation through collaboration, building skills and growing talent, and strengthening Scotland’s thriving data science community.

We believe Scotland can lead the world to a future where data powers scientific progress, economic prosperity and social good. We act as a catalyst, using our expertise, network, funding and platforms to change how Scotland, and the world, innovates with data. We believe that collaboration is the key to success in data science, so we don’t work in isolation, but rather with our network of over 1,500 companies, public sector organisations and universities, to make Scotland the global leader in data innovation. 

Through our hubs in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, we foster innovation through collaboration, build skills and grow talent, and champion Scotland’s data science community. Contact us to learn more about how we can help.

Data is everywhere. But it’s what you do with it that makes a difference. We’ll help you understand how to build data strategies for your organisation – and the tools you need.

Data is the fuel of our digital era, and our increasing use of these digital platforms means the exponential growth of data. At the same time, customers are expecting more personalised experiences. To be agile and innovative, organisations need to draw new value from this data and deliver personalised customer experiences and business insights.

This creates an opportunity to fundamentally rethink the way you operate and offer services. You can reimagine business models to improve the customer experience and drive revenue growth. And by innovating with new apps and modernising existing ones, you can adapt and automate business processes to drive productivity.

Come and visit our stand and we’ll help you de-mystify concepts like big data and show you the tools you need to get started. In the meantime find some useful resources here: https://aka.ms/datascotland
