On the one side, there is a need to aggregate and understand the data, thereby selecting the most appropriate techniques for their analysis. On the other side, it is of increasing importance for these techniques to be as accurate and precise as possible so as to reduce risks in the decision-making procedure or in research-based conclusions.
The members of the Research Center for Statistics (RCS) have been developing fundamental statistical research over the years and are continuing to actively contribute to the creation and improvement of statistical methods and techniques. They do so by constantly bringing forward numerous international collaborations which deliver benefits in terms of quality and importance of their research activities.
The programme is open not only to experts who wish to improve their theoretical skills in statistical research, but also to non-experts who wish to develop their data analysis skills in an area of specialisation acquired at the Bachelor level.
