The eScience Institute is located in the Washington Research Foundation (WRF) Data Science Studio, on the 6th floor of the Physics & Astronomy Tower on the southwest corner of the University of Washington campus. The studio features a 360 degree view that includes some of Seattle’s iconic landmarks, and is open weekdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. during the academic year – these times may change for holidays and breaks.
The studio is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The WRF Data Science Studio is designed around the principle that innovative data science is advanced at universities through the creation of high quality physical spaces that successfully cultivate the “water cooler” effect, raise the level of prestige for data science and scientists, and are adaptable to a range of activities that can promote research collaborations and learning.
The studio brings together eScience data scientists and researchers who reside in academic units spread across our large campus. With reconfigurable furniture and layouts, the space is designed for flexibility — providing our permanent data scientist staff space for individual quiet work and our broader community space for small group meetings, seminars, and hands-on training events.
