Research Support

We can help you acquire data (for instance through data scraping), data analysis and developing data science tools. We can also use data analyses to suggest hypotheses that could be relevant to your research. You can further refine and develop these hypotheses. We also give advice on the data and methodologies that you will need to answer your research question, for instance:

  • statistical techniques
  • deep learning
  • regression analyses
  • support vector machines

If your research proposal is accepted, you will receive support from a data scientist for up to 450 hours. This research support is funded through the University of Groningen Multi-Annual IT Plan 2016–2020. In 2017, 50% of the research proposals were accepted. You thus have a significant chance of your proposal being accepted. If your research proposal is not accepted, we can provide other forms of support. Contact us to see how we can work together. You can of course make use of CIT’s expertise in areas such as High Performance Computing (HPC), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and 3D Visualization.

Help with Research proposals

We can also help with your research proposal. We can help you work out which IT expertise and technology you will need and estimate the associated budget, so that you can submit a convincing proposal to grant providers.


We provide courses on Machine Learning and Deep Learning at both CIT and the IT Academy Noord-Nederland.

We hold weekly walk-in consultancy sessions at the Centre for Digital Humanities. Come along with your questions about using IT to further your research. The sessions are held in the Digital Humanities lab (in the Harmonie Building). You will find the date of the next consultancy hour on the poster.
