About the department
Data Science and Innovation (DSI) was established in March 2022 to drive digitalisation across the value chain in R&ED from early discovery to pre-clinical development. DSI is supporting the digital transformation journey across all our therapy areas in R&ED. The DSI vision is to amplify and accelerate our science through innovative use of data, digital tools, and computational approaches. Our current focus in DSI is to generate and showcase business value – based on addressing specific scientific questions and processes in a “digital-first” approach – while building the digital foundation to deliver our ambitions by scaling data, digital tools, and computational approaches across R&ED.

We work to build an attractive community of data, digital and scientific professionals and foster a strong DIGITAL CULTURE for our multidisciplinary delivery teams that collaborate across R&ED and IT areas. We engage in external collaborations to pursue and build digital science and innovation capabilities.
