REGISTER now to receive an invitation to DataScienceDay@UiO

The event will be opened by an address from the Prime Minister of Norway to celebrate the grand opening of the dScience centre, followed by a panel discussion with invited participants from academia and industry.

After a short break, we will be hearing exciting talks from our invited speakers. This year, we have invited Norwegian entrepreneur Anita Schjøll Brede from and Simen Eide, PhD candidate at UiO and Data Scientist from, to talk us through the various challenges and opportunities in data science research and its application to real life problems. Before and after the talks, we gather in the Science Library foyer for mingling and refreshments.


Continuing the success from previous years, we invite interested parties from industry to set up stands where they can present themselves to the rest of our guests. Our goal is to bring all parts of the data science community together for a unique networking opportunity.


Data Science Day is an event for everyone, whether you are familiar with data science practices, or you are simply curious what data science is all about.
