Alan Turing Institute


UCL & The Alan Turing Institute

Alan Turing Institute

UCL is a founding partner of the Alan Turing Institute. The Alan Turing Institute is the UK national Data Science Institute. 

The Institute’s mission is to:

  • undertake data science research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, statistics and systems engineering; 
  • provide technically informed advice to policy makers on the wider implications of algorithms; enable researchers from industry and academia to work together to undertake research with practical applications; 
  • act as a magnet for leaders in academia and industry from around the world to engage with the UK in data science and its applications.

The Institute is headquartered at The British Library, at the heart of London’s knowledge quarter, and brings together leaders in advanced mathematics and computing science from the five founding universities and other partners. Its work is expected to encompass a wide range of scientific disciplines and be relevant to a large number of business sectors.

UCL is committed to working with the other Joint Venture Universities to build a world-leading Alan Turing Institute.

To ensure that our input to the Institute is representative of our many diverse strengths, we strongly encourage participation and engagement from across the UCL community. Please contact turing@ucl.ac.uk to join our mailing list, to express interest, or to obtain further information.

Details of current and upcoming events and opportunities are available on the Institute Website.
