About the lab

The South Campus Data Lab (SCDataLab) is a data science knowledge hub for researchers from the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Theology. It is funded by the KU Data Science programme. The lab was established on June 1, 2020 in collaboration with the three faculties and the Department of Computer Science.

The overall purpose of the lab is to enhance the quality of data analysis in the research at South Campus. This is done through consultations, and workshops, where Data Science expertise is made available to all institutes in our domain. Our data science expertise involves:

  • Collection of data (e.g. textual, numeric, multimedia)
  • Analysis of data (statistical tools, algorithm design, statistical modeling and big data analysis)
  • Interpreting results (statistically sound conclusions, visualizations)

We want to develop and expand the interdisciplinary activities at the South Campus. We will do this through counselling, courses, workshops, networking events, and collaboration with researchers.
