Research Objectives

Digital procedures, methods, and media are transforming all aspects of our society including science, economy, and social relations, a process known as digitalization. Growing capacities of data processing and progress in analytical methods and artificial intelligence are motivating entire branches of science to raise new questions and to develop new approaches. This transformation requires progressive, interdisciplinary synergies between computer science and related scientific disciplines such as mathematics and statistics on the one hand, and virtually all other scientific disciplines on the other Hand.

The objective of the Digital Science Center at the University of Innsbruck integrates and promotes digitalization of scientific research, spearheading new research directions and supporting high-quality science.  To this end, it employs staff researchers from diverse scientific disciplines with high competence in digital science.  It forges new interdisciplinary research synergies and offers courses to promote competence in digital science in all scientific disciplines.
