What is The Data Lab?

The Data Lab is Scotland’s innovation centre for data and AI. We help Scotland maximise value from data and lead the world to a data-powered future.  

 Through hubs in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, we foster innovation through collaboration, build skills and grow talent, and champion Scotland’s data science community. Over the next five years, we aim to generate over £590m in economic and social impact for Scotland.
