The DSI collaborates with organizations that want to engage with and support world-class researchers, educators, and trainees advancing data sciences to expand our potential for meaningful impact.

The DSI seeks research and training partnerships with government, public organizations, academic institutions, and community groups. We work with partners to identify opportunities for collaborative research and training and are committed to building opportunities to translate research to impact.

Research Institute Funding Partners

The DSI appreciates the support of our research institute funding partners. While any researcher at an institution affiliated with U of T can join the DSI network and its events, DSI Membership and the ability to access DSI funding and support programs, such as catalyst grants and support for trainee salaries, require that a researcher’s primary institution be a funding partner that provides funding to the DSI.
