Mikroyannidis, Alexander; Domingue, John; Phethean, Christopher; Beeston, Gareth and Simperl, Elena (2018). Designing and Delivering a Curriculum for Data Science Education across Europe. In: Teaching and Learning in a Digital World: Proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Interactive Collaborative Learning – Volume 2 (Auer, Michael E.; Guralnick, David and Simonics, Istvan eds.), Springer, Cham, 716 pp. 540–550.



Data is currently being produced at an incredible rate globally, fuelled by the increasing ubiquity of the Web, and stoked by social media, sensors, and mobile devices. However, as the amount of available data continues to increase, so does the demand for professionals who have the necessary skills to manage and manipulate this data. This paper presents the European Data Science Academy (EDSA), an initiative for bridging the data science skills gap across Europe and training a new generation of world-leading data scientists. The EDSA project has established a rigorous process and a set of best practices for the production and delivery of curricula for data science. Additionally, the project’s efforts are dedicated to linking the demand for data science skills with the supply of learning resources that offer these skills.
