Founded through a partnership with State Street Global Exchange, the Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR) is focused on applying advanced data-science techniques to manage and mitigate economic and financial risk. CDAR brings together researchers from across UC Berkeley and builds upon the programs of the Center for Risk Management Research (CRMR), an existing unit dedicated to understanding the dynamics of risk in financial markets, and the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), which promotes scientific breakthroughs by advancing interdisciplinary, data-driven discovery.

CDAR was founded in 2015, and organizes and sponsors conferences, workshops, and research related to data and analytics, with industry and academic experts in fields such as statistics, economics, finance, mathematics, electrical engineering, computer science, and industrial engineering and operations.
