We are pleased to announce a new collaboration between the Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute (CANSSI) and Simon Fraser University (SFU). This fall SFU will become CANSSI’s host institution, housed within SFU’s Big Data Hub on the Burnaby campus.
CANSSI is a national not-for-profit with a mission to advance research, collaboration and training in the statistical sciences by forging collaborations with scientists and scholars in academia, government and industry, and with major funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council. SFU is defined by its dynamic integration of innovative education, cutting-edge research, and far-reaching community engagement. CANSSI and SFU are committed to a vision focused on excellence, collaboration, and nation-wide capacity building.
SFU’s commitment to research excellence that benefits broader society is well aligned with CANSSI’s vision to be Canada’s catalyst for discovery and innovation in statistical and data science research and training. Both institutions look forward to a strong relationship that will build on strengths in statistical and data science across the country.
We’re excited about this next phase in CANSSI’s evolution and look forward to your continued support.
