The Data-driven Life Science program, supported by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) arranges an annual conference in November. The Venue is not decided yet. Save the date!
SciLifeLab and Wallenberg national program for data-driven life science (DDLS), is a 12-year initiative funded with a total of SEK 3.1 billion from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The purpose of the program is to train and recruit the next generation of life scientists, to create a strong computational and data science base, and to strengthen the competencies in today’s research society, thereby enabling every scientist to better analyze data patterns and integrate their data with the global data flows in life sciences. Furthermore, the program aims to strengthen national collaborations between universities, bridge the research communities of life sciences and data sciences, and create partnerships with industry, healthcare and other national and international actors. The program focuses on four strategic areas for data-driven research, all of which are essential for improving the lives of people as well as animals and nature, detecting and treating diseases, protecting biodiversity and creating sustainability.
SciLifeLab, which today conducts research activities at all major Swedish universities, provides a national infrastructure and functions as a hub for life sciences in various disciplines, is the main host of the program.
