How do we unleash the potential of data to enrich the lives of people, make cities smarter and add value to business? At the Brightlands Institute for digital Smart Society (BISS) we focus on ‘Responsible and effective data-driven decision-making for the digital society’ and are cooperating in an interdisciplinary multidisciplinary way with all six faculties of Maastricht University.
Working together with companies and public institutions, BISS will execute and innovate research, educate professionals and involve students. By combining knowledge from data science with that of other outstanding disciplines at Maastricht University, it will work to develop innovative products, services and policy.
BISS provides translational research and education in the field of the digitalising society, focusing on the following themes:
We are located at the Brightlands Smart Services Campus and an integral part of the larger ecosystem that is flourishing here. Over 40 companies are active in-house and many more participate in different projects, teaming up with researchers and students whenever co-operation adds value. Among other facilities we run a fully operational Service Innovation lab and a separate Data Experience lab. The large Service Innovation lab has got flexible furniture to make it usable for various purposes (workshops, brainstorms seminars, student projects and many more). The Data Experience lab is mainly used for the development of data visualization applications. When looking for a fully equipped location in a data science environment, please contact us.
One of many collaboration programs we participate in is Techruption. Since the start of Techruption program in late 2016, BISS became in charge for the AI line. Please find out more about artificial intelligence projects at the Techruption site.
Every groundbreaking idea starts with a single question. Please get in touch and ask us anything at all. Who knows here it will end!
