CSDE Launches UWDC and Wins UW-STF Grant

Posted: 4/23/2019 (CSDE Research)

Last week was a busy one! In partnership with the Population Health Initiative and Urban@UW, CSDE launched the University of Washington Data Collaborative (UWDC), a new data and administrative infrastructure for storing and accessing innovative data, and building collaborations across the campus community.

In addition, the UWDC team won a UW Student Technology Fee grant to support the hard and soft infrastructure that will be used to build the data collaborative’s virtual machines! Shout-out to our computing experts Matt Weatherford and Alan Li.

According to CSDE Science Core Director Matt Hall, “The STF grant will dramatically expand our ability to provide access to the innovative data that is held by the UWDC. The UWDC is particularly excited to work with students across campus and at all stages of their academic careers to advance their research skills and experiences in population and data science.”
