MIDAS offers training in various formats for researchers with the goal of improving the data science and AI research capacity. See the event page for more details on upcoming and past events. We welcome academic units and industry partners as our collaborators to design and offer such training.

MIDAS Summer Academies

Our summer academies equip researchers with the essential skills required to apply advanced data science techniques to their respective fields of study and integrate these methodologies into their grant proposals. The overarching objective of these academies is to foster a research community that can drive the advancement of data science applications in a wide range of research fields.

For questions about the summer academies, please reach out to Kelly Psilidis (psilidis@umich.edu), MIDAS Faculty Training Program Manager.
