The two-day event took place over the 15-16 March 2017 in central Madrid. In addition to presenting success stories of the intial use cases of the implimentaion of the EDISON Data Science Framework (EDSF), workshop attendees had the opportunity to be briefed on how they too can be helped to accelerate the process of developing industry-aligned education and training courses.
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:

In addition to the community building activites and organised interest groups, EDISON will prepare a number of formal documents around a Competence Framework (CF-DS) to support the concepts that underpin Data Science as a profession together with reference implimentations in the form of a Body of Knowledge (DS-BoK) and Model Curriculum (MC-DS).
In order to help train, educate and recruit the data scientists of tomorrow we need to know more about all aspects of the profession. So we very much welcome input from all of those involved from the educators and recruitors to the practitioners as well as the would-be data scientists of tomorrow. If you can spare 20 minute then please do take time to complete our survey. Thanks.
