Helmholtz Analytics Framework

The Helmholtz Analytics Framework is a data science pilot project funded by the Helmholtz Initiative and Networking Fund. Together with five institutes of Forschungszentrum Jülich and five other Helmholtz centres, JSC will pursue the systematic development of domain-specific data analytics techniques in a co-design approach between domain scientists and information experts in order to strengthen the development of data sciences within the Helmholtz Association. In challenging applications such as earth system modelling, structural biology, aerospace, medical imaging, and neurosciences, data analytics methods will be applied to demonstrate their potential in leading to scientific breakthroughs and new knowledge. In addition, the exchange of methods between individual scientific areas should lead to their generalization and standardization.

The Helmholtz Analytics Framework will be an essential part of the software stack complementing the Helmholtz Data Federation (HDF). The three-year project will start in October 2017.
