BIDS’ main facility, centrally located in 190 Doe Library, served as a meeting place for research discussions, talks, and events  and when the UC Berkeley campus transitioned to physical distancing and remote-only events in March 2020, BIDS moved seamlessly into a new paradigm of virtual engagement. The BIDS community is not tied to any particular location or department, and openly shares all of the research outputs that researchers and staff here develop. As such, BIDS has created and maintained a reputation of open engagement with the entire campus, which has been an integral factor in fostering collaboration and data science engagement with research.
