Science to Data Science

Where data scientists and businesses work together


Why Now?

Data science and Artificial Intelligence is helping businesses improve products and customer experiences, make data-driven decisions, and automate time-consuming tasks.

From chatbots to more complex predictive analytics tools, there’s a wide range of AI applications that businesses are looking to implement that can all deliver competitive advantage.

The secret is out. Businesses today can see the value data science is creating for their competitors, and the disruptions it’s causing in well established sectors. They know they need AI to meet growing customer expectations.

Most companies understand that it’s time to move forward, and data science offers the insights and intelligence, efficiency and automation they’re looking for.

Data science is no longer ‘nice to have’ or a set of cool tools to impress Management. Data strategies are becoming the very core of business, and all the while it’s becoming easier and cheaper to get your hands on the technology.

However, implementation is complex; adoption and the first steps to run projects and models are hard. As a result, it’s vital to have the right partner; one who’s been there before, with a track record of running successful data science projects for companies of all sizes and maturity.

What is Science to Data Science? (S2DS)

Pivigo’s Science to Data Science (S2DS) programme provides our partners with a fully managed 5-week data science project, working to solve real business problems through data science with a team of 4 to 5 PhDs looking to become Data Scientists and transition from academia to industry.

The projects deliver significant value in terms of the models and algorithms created to solve the business challenge, with significant ROI many times greater than the project costs. The types of projects delivered are varied, but often focus on predictive analytics, machine-learning and deep learning techniques.

For our partners, it’s a great way to run exploratory PoC projects, without fully committing internal resource.

How It Works

We work with you to define the project, looking at the questions you want to answer, or the problems you’re looking to solve with data science and AI. Our team will carefully scope out the project using the experience and learnings of 350+ projects, ensuring we define what is achievable and ensure the greatest project success.

We then put together a team of analytical PhD and MSc Data Scientists to work on your project with you. Across the 5 weeks, the team will use best practice, innovative machine learning techniques, to work on cleaning, analysing, and presenting their outcomes.


Run POCs and experiments to a full conclusion, ready for production.

When does it run?

We run S2DS three times a year in March, August, and October. The programme is run virtually, ensuring you have access to the brightest talent across the globe.

Proven results in weeks, not years

"Both our S2DS teams have showed us that data science is integral part of our business in current times. Their work will make valuable impact and help our marketing efforts going forward. It was a pleasure working with Pivigo and the S2DS team."

"We partnered with Pivigo's S2DS to build a new analytical model for our product. We were very impressed with our team; their practicality and commercial thinking. S2DS is a great programme, well run and beneficial not only for the data scientists but for the participating businesses as well."

"The result has given us a greater understanding of how our customers choose from our recipes, increased our spend per customer and will help us to forecast more accurately."
