DEMAND: Data Engineering and Management in Data Chains
The DEMAND research project is implemented by HAN University of Applied Sciences (HAN) in cooperation with Saxion UAS, Fontys UAS, and thirteen consortium partners including three municipalities and several enterprises with proven technical and organizational knowledge of data chains. DEMAND acts as a bridge builder between, on the one hand, the research practice with the educational practice, and on the other hand the research practice with the professional field. The project is financed through by the Dutch Taskforce for Applied Research SIA’s SPRONG programme, which aims to build long-term inter-institutional research collaboration to tackle complex societal issues.
The DEMAND research project provides new methodologies and tools to oversee complex data streams. The project also helps to integrate and manage data chains. To this end, the project group will conduct research into digital technologies such as algorithms and transformations. We are also looking for methods to build data chains as efficiently as possible.
New insights from the project also feed back into education, through case studies and modules that are incorporated into, especially, the Masters’ curricula. Lecturers and students are encouraged to participate in research activities, and research outcomes are brought to the national platform for higher professional ICT education, HBO-i.
