Welcome to the Data Science Lab of the Mathematical Sciences Institute (ICMAT) which is part of the National Research Council (CSIC). The ICMAT has the Severo Ochoa Excellence distinction for the 2020-2023 period. The AXA-ICMAT Chair in Adversary Risk Analysis resides in the Datalab.


Support companies, administrations and non-governmental organizations to successfully carry out the development of solutions to theoretical and practical problems that require advanced and frontier knowledge in statistics, machine learning, data science and engineering, operations research, artificial intelligence and mathematics. We motivate institutions, scientists, researchers and postgraduate students to collaborate in challenges promoting the improvement of society.


Develop the practice and theory of innovation driven by frontier research in statistical, mathematical and decision-making methods for organizations with successful results, so as to become an international reference.
