The Analytics Institute is currently developing professional certification programmes for Members. We are designing these programmes under the guidance of our Advisory Council and with the support of our academic partner, NUIG.
Our certification programmes will be based on our Professional Skills Framework which will be published shortly. This Framework is based on the EU Edison Data Science Framework (www.edison-project.eu) which breaks down the complexity of the skills and competences needed to define Data Science as a professional practice.
The EDISON project seeks to work in close co-operation with the initiatives, experts and practitioners involved in data science and/or in the development of data science training in the European scientific landscape. Three EDISON Liaison Groups (ELG) have been convened to involve representatives (experts and pioneers) from three domains: academia, employer sectors, and also recognized data experts from different disciplines interested in advising the project team. The ultimate aim is to configure a critical mass of stakeholders to secure the long-term sustainability of the profession.
We will be in touch with all members once the final details of the certification programmes are agreed. In the meantime, please register your interest by completing the ‘Register Interest Form’.
