The creativity to learn from,
understand, and make use of data

Big data analytics has been recognized as a high priority and promising field for the development of the Faculty of Sciences and Engineering (FSG) and for Laval University as a whole.

Indeed, Big data analytics is a challenge for a growing number of scientific disciplines. Through the contribution of researchers from five faculties, the Big Data Research Centre (BDRC) is a catalyst and a nexus to integrate multidisciplinary approaches dealing with Big Data issues.

The BDRC will thus become a focus point of our University for every aspect of Big Data applied solutions for our actors in the regions.
