The DRIVEN research fields are Economics, Environmental Engineering, Geophysics, Material Engineering, Physics, Psychology, Social Sciences, Life Sciences and Systems Biomedicine. They are represented by PIs from various Luxembourgish research institutions and clustered in three groups:
- Computational Physics and Engineering Sciences,
- Computational Biology and Life Sciences,
- Computational Behavioural and Social Sciences.
Machine learning algorithms and Big Data concepts are already exploited in some of these research fields. DRIVEN substantially enhances existing understanding and algorithms in these fields and explores the utility of newly emerging methods. In those research fields where data-driven techniques are less established, we explore, adapt and test the utility of established methods and demonstrate their benefits for generating new insights and research questions. These activities greatly benefit from knowledge exchange between research fields, enabling an appreciation of the full potential and limitations of data-driven approaches.
