    Dear All,
    This might be interesting information for practitioners working with
    Data Science, Data Stewardship and curricula developments.
    New Release 4 of the EDISON Data Science Framework (EDSF) has been
    published and archived on Zenodo. It incorporates all developments and
    updates since the last Release 3 in 2018.
    The new Release 4 includes a new Part 5 that contains references to
    experiences with using EDSF for different purposes, primarily for
    curriculum development, but also using EDSF methodology for competences
    and skills definition in other domains such as Data Stewardship,
    Artificial Intelligence, and general digital and data skills.
