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:

Defining the Data Science profession: a survey
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.
