First edition Summer School ‘Data Science and AI in Health’ starts

The first edition of the summer school 'Data Science and AI in Health' is about to start. This week, participants will be introduced to various aspects of data science, such as setting up and implementing a project. The overarching theme of this event will be pulmonary diseases. Within this context, we will explore how diagnosis and treatment can be improved with the help of data science and AI.

Rapid advancements in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) call for a new generation of clinicians and (clinical) scientists, who are able to develop and introduce new prediction models and treatment strategies in healthcare. Therefore, the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) organises the new (online) Summer School ‘Data Science and AI in Health’ from 5 to 9 July, 2021. 

Enlight Scholarships

A huge number of applications have come in and three students have been awarded an ENLIGHT European University scholarship for this summer school. ENLIGHT is a network of nine European universities wih the ambition to transform higher education and empower learners as globally engaged citizens.
