Towards a Community-driven Data Science Body of Knowledge – Data Management Skills and Competences
Abstract. The Horizon 2020 EDISON project (1 September 2015 – 30 August 2017) aims to develop a sustainable business model that will ensure a significant increase in the number and quality of data scientists graduating from universities and being trained by other professional education and training institutions in Europe. This will be accomplished through the development of a number of inter-connected activities including the definition of required skills and competences, defining a Data Science Competence Framework (DS-CF), a Data Science Body of Knowledge (DS-BoK) and also a Model Curriculum (DS-MC).
The proposed speech will contribute by presenting EDISON initial development and findings in term of skills and competences required by the family of Data Scientist professional profile and related Body of Knowledge, with particular focus on the Data Management knowledge Areas. The presentation will help to initiate an open dialogue with the Research Community to characterize the existing needs and practical requirements, topical trends and preferences in order to provide the community perspective to the on-going development of DS-CF and DS-BoK.
