The Analytics Institute exists to support the Data Science and Analytics sector. We do this by providing a platform for our members to share insights and expertise,  to collaborate and build networks in the industry and to foster innovation in the sector. We are fully supported in our mission by leading organisations in the public and private sectors.

Corporate member organisations can ensure their staff are kept fully up to date on new developments in the sector by attending our monthly Continuous Professional Development events.  They also have access to analytics training programmes designed around members specific training requirements.  We host quarterly networking events and user groups so that analytics professionals can make new friends and build contacts in the industry. Our annual National Analytics Conference is the key industry event of the year.

All events are free of charge to member organisations.

We also support career development and skills mapping through our Professional Skills Framework – based on the EU Edison Project.

We will undertake our first National Analytics Maturity Index in mid 2018 with the publication of the report scheduled for November 2018.
