Tackling big data: How Europe is trying to bridge the data science skills gap

Tech.eu has published an article presenting EDSA and discussing the challenges of bridging the data science skills gap in Europe. The article features quotes from Elena Simperl (University of Southampton) and Angi Voss (Fraunhofer IAIS).

“We’re going to define the European curriculum for data scientists,” said Elena. “We’re going to come up with a proposal for learning objectives, topics that they need to study, forms of learning and create training materials in different languages.”

Angi mentioned that “we support the idea of building a European academy for data science, which will continue to act as a network between organisations committed to a high quality and regionally adapted training of data scientists”.
