Help consolidate the understanding of the DATA SCIENCE professions

The EDISON - Building The Data Science Profession project launched a recent questionnaire with the aim to consolidate the understanding of the Data Science professions. The survey will take some 25 minutes of your time to be completed and will be kept open until 22 January 2017.


The emergence of Data Science technologies is having an impact on nearly every aspect of how research is conducted, how scientists think, and how research data are used and shared.

       # Why does Data Science matter?

On the other hand, the lack of digital skills, and data literacy in particular, is an evident issue in European Union (EU) markets. European Commission is proactively engaging with entrepreneurs, decision-makers, and educators to act now to secure the EU leadership in the digital economy. One of these efforts is represented by a 2-year (started in September 2015) EU H2020 project – EDISON.

The purpose of the research is to accelerate the process of establishing the profession of Data Scientist by identifying skills and competences required for the emerging Data Science professions

       # The EDISON Data Science Framework (EDSF)

To this end, your point of view is crucial for this analysis on how the professional practice of data scientists may evolve.

The survey will take less than 30 minutes of your time to be completed and will be kept open until 22 January 2017.

EDISON team appreciates your effort and believe that this is a unique opportunity to provide your own perspective and contribution to a wider EU effort.
