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 fueling innovation through collaboration, building skills and growing talent, and strengthening Scotland’s thriving data science community. 

The power of collaboration

We believe Scotland can lead the world to a future where data powers scientific progress, economic prosperity and social good. So 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.
