SanDAL project: University of Luxembourg receives 2.5 million euro for research in data science 


10 January 2019


Intelligentsia was happy to see the University of Luxembourg officially begin a prestigious ERA (European Research Area) Chair project funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 framework programme. With a budget of 2.5 million euros for the period 2019-2024, the university will create a high-level research group in mathematical statistics and data science. It is the very first time that this prize has been awarded to a Luxembourg institution.


Intelligentsia helped to write the grant proposal for the project entitled “ERA Chair in Mathematical Statistics and Data Science for the University of Luxembourg – SanDAL”.


The project will boost research and training in mathematical statistics and data science by focusing on two areas: “High-Dimensional Data Analysis” to have a deeper understanding of emerging computational tools and “New Mathematical Tools for Contemporary Statistics” to develop new and more sophisticated statistical methods.


In addition, new teaching programmes at Master and PhD levels will be elaborated to provide future students with the necessary skills in mathematical statistics and data science to understand, develop and apply new tools in various fields.


To ensure the development of a strong and sustainable new direction of research, the University of Luxembourg will recruit highly qualified research staff, namely a permanent professor who will act as the ERA Chair Holder, two postdoctoral researchers and three PhD candidates.
