Home to The National Innovation Centre for Data

Our aim is for The National Innovation Centre for Data (NICD) to transform how companies are doing business across the globe by utilising their data in ways they have never explored before. NICD builds on the world-leading expertise in data science and its application developed within Newcastle University over the past decade.

At NICD, we enable you to consider the data expertise required by your organisation and to ‘grow your own’! We act as a 'critical friend', rather than as a consultant, to enable the staff in your organisation to explore your data and achieve your goals.

As you will see from our case studies on our website, the key to success is to consider the business questions that your data can help you answer. You supply the domain knowledge and we explore the data with you.
