The student Data Science community in Leuven

Emergent Leuven VZW is the interfaculty Data Science student association.

There’s a shortage of professionals who master an advanced set of skills in Data Science, but an increasing demand of these skills. With Emergent Leuven, we solve this problem in 3 ways:

Develop transdisciplinary analytical skills (data science + communication + strategy) through participation in workshops and educational tracks, as well as organisational skills through organisation of activities.

Apply skills at challenges and consultancy tracks.

Transfer mastered skills by teaching a workshop, or coaching during challenges or consultancy tracks.

We do this in close collaboration with industry and academia to bring students, researchers and professionals closer together.


Learn and experience how to stay relevant in this world. Emerge.

What does Emergent offer?

Workshops for every step of the data science pipeline for technical and non-technical profiles, concrete opportunities to apply those skills and to transfer them to peers. Creating an inter-faculty network with people that share your same interests.
