NeEDS (Network of European Data Scientists) is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under a Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant. The Network consists of six academic and eight industrial participants from five EU countries, USA and Chile. The participants combine strong and complementary expertise, within industry sectors ranging from energy, retailing, insurance to banking, as well as national statistical offices. With this composition, NeEDS is in a unique position to deliver cutting-edge multidisciplinary research to advance academic thinking on Data Science in Europe, and to improve the Data Science capabilities of industry and the public sector.
Via regular secondments and events such as modelling weeks, workshops and seminars, the NeEDS participants get to collaboratively work on their research projects closely connected to industry with a strong focus on knowledge transfer.
