Data and Web Science Lab is an active research group engaged in research and innovation on ICT complex data science and engineering technologies, offering end-to-end multi way and multi scope analytics.

Data and Web Science Lab can offer end-to-end solutions from raw data to insightful results and from low-level data management to advanced algorithms and applications. It fosters strong international collaborations with multi-disciplinary synergies (engineering, psychology, social sciences, arts, cultural studies, etc) providing data protection and EU GDPR consultancy and technical support. Our group consists of vibrant researchers and developers that encourage entrepreneurship and innovation, providing project management and coordination of research projects and novel ideas for extensive and advanced software and web development. We also support research and technology transfer to industry through multiple bilateral industry collaborations.
