European Data Science Academy
The European Data Science Academy (EDSA) designs curricula for data science training and data science education across the European Union (EU). EDSA establishes a virtuous learning production cycle whereby we: a) analyse the required sector specific skillsets for data scientists across the main industrial sectors in Europe; b) develop modular and adaptable data science curricula to meet industry expectations; and c) deliver data science training supported by multi-platform and multilingual learning resources.
Data explosion on the web, fuelled by social networking, micro-blogging, as well as crowdsourcing, has led to the Big Data phenomenon. This is characterized by increasing volumes of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, originating from sources that generate them at an increasing rate. This wealth of data provides numerous new analytic and business intelligence opportunities to various industry sectors.
