Organisation profile

Centre for Big Data (CeBiDa) is an interdisciplinary research centre focusing on big data analytics, methodologies, modelling, big data learning and visualisations of big data in different contexts. It combines research across natural science, humanities, social science and technical sciences.


The Centre has a strategic aim to conduct research and offer courses both internally and externally.

In order to fully commit to this strategic aim the Centre has intensified interdisciplinary collaboration through facilitating closer integration and synergy between natural science, humanities, social science and technology. Roskilde University holds a unique position by working across a broad spectrum of highly relevant research areas, educational aspects and having established collaboration with a range of external stakeholders like NGOs, private companies, universities and public institutions. CeBiDa demonstrates the strengths of interdisciplinarity and intersectoral collaboration on a local, national and international level.

  • Interdisciplinary research with big data
  • Innovation and implementation of interdisiplinary big data solutions
  • Further external funding for research projects
  • Provide important knowledge on big data, which can be used by stakeholders in both the public and private sector
