EDSA had a very successful first review last week in Luxembourg.

Professor John Domingue and Keyur Dave represented the KMi team at the review and were also responsible for the overall project presentation as KMi is the project coordinator.

A panel of two international experts, chaired by EC project officer Carola Carstens, assessed the project with the first year project outcomes being accepted.

EDSA is a three year long project funded by the European Commission under The EU Horizon 2020 Framework for Research and Innovation with a budget of almost €3 million. The overall objective of EDSA will establish a virtuous learning production cycle whereby we: a) analyse the required sector specific skillsets for data analysts across the main industrial sectors in Europe; b) develop modular and adaptable data science curricula to meet these needs; and c) deliver training supported by multiplatform and multilingual learning resources based on our curricula. The curricula and learning resources will be continuously evaluated by pedagogical and data science experts during both development and deployment.

The reviewers were very impressed with what has been achieved with the project so far, and were excited by the potential value of the EDSA for designing a curricula for data science training and data science education across the European Union.
