You are here

We organize SoBigData conventional and unconventional training experience for master and PhD students and post-doctoral trainees. SoBigData Datathons bring together computer programmers, storytellers, graphic designers and statisticians. SoBigData Summer Schools prepare the best PhDs in science and engineering to work as data scientists. SoBigData Training Courses are tailored specifically for high-school students to attract young bright minds into data science, to illustrate the creativity and the opportunities of the data scientist job, and to prepare the next generation of social data researchers.
