iHub-Data, a Technology Innovation Hub for Data Banks, Data Services and Data Analytics (TIH-Data), established by IIIT Hyderabad, primarily aims to coordinate, integrate and amplify the research in the larger areas of Data Banks, Data Services and Data Analytics under the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) scheme.

iHub-Data has been created as a Section 8 company that manages the Data Foundation, Research & Technology Development, Applied Research & Translation, HRD & Skill Development, Innovation & Start-ups, and the International Collaborations directly.

The Hub helps coordinate, integrate, and amplify basic and applied research in broad Data-Driven Technologies as well as its dissemination and translation across the country.

The Hub will also have an intense emphasis on collaborating with international experts in associated areas. This will include joint research, visiting schemes for international experts, involvement in the processes and problems of the Hub, etc. A series of workshops, conferences, and meetings are also planned to bring global experts in direct contact with the Indian researchers and students in associated areas.

The six major activities promoted by iHub-Data include:

  • Technology Development
  • Data Foundation
  • Applied Research & Translation
  • Human Resource & Skill Development
  • Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Startup Ecosystem
  • International Collaboration


Mission & Vision

iHub-Data will help coordinate and enhance national research and solution development efforts in the Data (Banks, Services and Analytics) areas and take them to the highest global academic standards. Applications towards the betterment of the society around us will have a special focus at the Hub, along with the translation of technologies into viable products and promoting startups based on those technologies.

  • To be a global leader in research outcomes that also impacts our society with the technologies that are translated to local industries and governmental agencies.
  • To play a central role in development and penetration of data-driven technologies by taking a proactive strategy in curating and creating data banks and data services.
  • To catalyse, nurture, and enable the growth of an ecosystem with researchers, technologists, practitioners and entrepreneurs in the area of data-driven solutions to the local problems.

The grand vision for iHub-Data is to become the pre-eminent reference for datasets for AI researchers world-wide and also develop solutions using these datasets to address population scale challenges resulting in wide societal impact.
