Build your network

The Jean Golding Institute facilitates interdisciplinary working and partnerships. We foster a data-intensive research community at the University of Bristol and establish working relationships with local government, community organisations, SMEs and industry.

Bristol Data Science Network on Slack

Join our community on Slack - open to anyone, including researchers, practitioners, students and stakeholders.

Looking to meet academics from other fields of research, find out about their latest passions and discoveries and develop new research partnerhsips?

'Famous for 3 minutes' is a popular fast-paced networking event for academics right across the University of Bristol. With just three minutes and one slide each to communicate their research, attendees get an opportunity to see a huge variety of ideas, models, theories and findings related to data science.
