From genomics to criminology, from physics to healthcare, Simon Fraser University seeks to spark new collaborations that combine big questions and big ideas with data-intensive discovery.
SFU is building on a decade of leadership in the field of big data, investing in advanced research computing to accelerate scholarship and innovation by bringing new data tools and resources to all members of our campus community. We are investing in the growth of data-intensive research across all eight Faculties to raise awareness of big data in every field of study and mobilize knowledge for real world impact. Our academic programs and strategic partnerships harness the power of big data to contribute to a competitive economy and the development of skills and expertise in our work force.
