The European Data Science Academy (EDSA) is seeking to recruit industry experts for the EDSA Advisory Board.
The European Data Science Academy is funded under the Horizon 2020 programme by the European Commission. The project will address the growing skills gap in data science across Europe. EDSA will evaluate the sector specific data science skills needed and develop curriculum and training to meet these, enabling the next generation of data scientists to meet the new challenges of the data economy.
We are seeking industry leaders across Europe who have the experience and knowledge to advise the project on the key data science skill needs and challenges in their industry.
Board members will be asked to attend online bi-annual meetings and in addition, will be regularly updated on the progress of the project. Board members will be asked to advise on the changing demands in their sector, and to review EDSA data science curriculum.
