Appointment of Board Members to the Skills Advisory Board of The Data Lab Innovation Centre

The Data Lab is one of eight Innovation Centres in Scotland, recently re-funded with an £13.5M grant from the Scottish Funding Council, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Government to generate significant economic, social and scientific value from data. Hosted by The University of Edinburgh, The Data Lab enables industry, public sector and world-class university researchers to innovate and develop new data science and artificial intelligence capabilities in a collaborative environment.

The Data Lab has been operational for over 4 years and has a wide range of activities and projects underway across our three core areas: Support to Innovate, Skills & Talent and Community & Events.

We are looking to reconstitute our Skills Advisory Board and will be recruiting new Board members for all positions excluding the Chair and The Data Lab representatives. We anticipate ensuring we have a breadth of experience as well as diversity of thought, background, industry and geography across our appointed board members.

If you are in any doubt, I would encourage you to apply for this post – it is vital that we have a diverse range of applicants as we recognise the need for fresh ideas and different perspectives and approaches as we look to take The Data Lab forward.

Please forward your CV and covering letter detailing why you have applied to join The Data Lab Skills Advisory Board and what you bring to the role on or before the closing date of Friday 6th September 2019 to hr@thedatalab.com.
