  • First EDISON Champions Conference

    The first EDISON Champions Conference was a great success.

    The pioneers of data science teaching and training assembled in the New Forest over the 13th - 14th July, just as the British Summer was making its first real appearance. The Champions enjoyed two days of stimulating and productive discussion triggered by the emergent findings of the project material. Further information available below:
