Collaborate with HIDA

Friends of HIDA

The Helmholtz Information & Data Science Academy’s mission is to train the next generation of data scientists for the world of tomorrow. We work with partners in academia and industry to help make this mission a reality.

A network to tackle grand challenges with data science training

Our long-term vision for the Helmholtz Information & Data Science Academy is to become the hub for data science education and training in Germany within a worldwide network united in its pursuit to contribute to solving grand challenges facing society, science and the economy. Together with our Helmholtz Information & Data Science Schools and excellent German university partners, we welcome academic and industry partners internationally to join us in this pursuit.


Ways to engage

There are many ways for research institutions, government bodies and industry to work with us.

Exchange programs

Data scientists at our 19 Helmholtz are open to collaboration and hosting researchers from around the world in their groups. We also support short-term stays for Helmholtz data scientists at our partners’ institutes. HIDA help to spark these collaborations. If you’re interested in collaborating with Helmholtz data scientists in Germany and/or would like to host them at your research institution, please get in touch.
