The Schmidt Center for Data Science and the Environment (DS4E) is a new partnership between UC Berkeley's Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management and the Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society, with the financial support of the Schmidt Family Foundation. The Center will combine the power of computing and environmental science with open science principles and a commitment to inclusivity - all towards the purpose of building tangible, replicable, and accessible solutions to problems compromising the health of our environment. Team members in the Center will co-create these solutions in direct partnership with those who hold the knowledge and expertise of their local needs and environmental context.
