Wednesday, 17 July 2019 Erasmus+ project Da.Re update

On 11th July, Assist. Prof. Branko Kavšek, PhD (principal investigator on UP FAMNIT) attended a fruitful meeting in Braganca (Portugal), which was the last one in the frame of the Erasmus+ project Da.Re (Data Science Pathways to re-imagine education). Partners from Italy, Portugal, Serbia and United Kingdom discussed about present activities, they analyzed those made in the past and presented final activities. In fact, the project will end in August, when a more detailed report on successfully implemented activities will be published.

The project's general objective is to build, improve and maintain industry-university networking in the field of data science as a means to strengthen Europe's knowledge triangle of research, education and business and to raise awareness of Big Data's potential as a bridge between these worlds.

Maintaining this link is key due to the dynamic nature of Data Science. Continuous improvement and a constant loop between industry and academia for sharing requirements and findings is also fundamental.

More details about the work we have done is available on the project website, where you can find also the Online Training Course and access to the innovative educational and training material prepared for the next generation of data scientists.
