Education and training on Data Science and IoT

Overview

Data Science and Internet of Things (IoT) have been recognized as the technologies among the key drivers of change regarding the skills and competences required by the IT labor market. The foreseen skills’ gap together with the rapid and continuous evolution of Data Science and IoT technologies and their application in many economy’s sectors make the skills required by related occupational profiles increasingly sophisticated, and the need to be constantly updated imperative. This skills’ gap together with the rapid evolution of Data Science and IoT technologies have created an important educational and training challenge, namely the need to train a large number of professionals in order to be able to effectively respond to industry’s demands. The special session “Education and training on Data Science and IoT” within the PCI 2020 Conference focuses on all the educational and training activities related to Data Science and IoT, including academic and VET programs, online training, blended learning, work-based learning, national and international educational policies and instruments, and international projects.
