Data-driven innovation

Launched at the end of 2018, the 10-year Data Driven Innovation (DDI) Programme is one of six programmes funded within the Edinburgh & South-East Scotland City Region Deal.

The DDI Programme’s aim is to make Edinburgh the data capital of Europe, with ambitious targets to support, enhance and improve talent, research, commercial adoption and entrepreneurship across the region through better use of data.

The Programme targets 10 industry sectors, with interactions managed through five DDI Hubs: the Bayes Centre (where EPCC is based), the Usher Institute, Edinburgh Futures Institute, the National Robotarium, and Easter Bush. The activities of these Hubs will be underpinned by a World-Class Data Infrastructure, to be developed and hosted by EPCC.
