IDSS convenes industry leaders in the fields of data science and engineering systems to foster collaboration, shared learning and creative idea generation.

IDSS offers two ways for industry to get involved:

  • IDSS Industry Partners Program
  • IDSS Industry Alliance (IA)

IDSS Industry Partners Program

Partners support fellowships and research in areas including energy, smart urban infrastructure, finance, and social networks. Partners receive early access to research of interest to them, and are invited to interact with faculty and students to explore leading research challenges of common interest. In addition, partners are invited to join the IDSS External Advisory Board and advise on the direction and future of IDSS. Partners are automatically included as members of the broader Industry Alliance (IA).
