What is the Data and Decision Science Initiative?
The Data and Decision Science Initiative developed from a 2019 review of our capacity in “Big Data” and health informatics. The initiative is part of the 2020-2025 UOW strategic plan where data and decision science is recognised as an important component of the transformative models and technologies for our research, innovation and impact (section 2.5). Specifically, a UOW Data and Decision Science Initiative (DDSI) is listed as a component of delivering the UOW strategy. The National Institute for Applied Statistics Research Australia (NIASRA) plays a key leadership role in coordinating and delivering the initiative.
