Objectives

  • Support an interdisciplinary team of data analytics researchers
  • Act as a source of expertise for both the public and private sectors
  • Foster a training hub for the next generation of data scientists

Partnerships

The CBA will partner with external organizations as well as software and application providers to maximize its impact. In fact, the Centre has already developed a relationship with SAS, a leading analytics software provider that is widely used in the field.

Membership

Membership in the CBA is open to all Brock faculty and staff who feel they can contribute to its objectives — there will be regular calls to expand the Centre’s membership. Brock students are also welcome to attend member committee meetings, and graduates in the field of analytics are encouraged to become CBA affiliates.
