Course & Event Funding

Funding of Data Science Courses and Events

The mission of the Danish Data Science Academy is to support a national collaborative network of data science experts across universities, public institutions and industries; and to inspire and train the next generation of data scientists through educational, interdisciplinary and collaborative activities.
To achieve this, we invite applications for funding of events and courses that will contribute to growing a strong data science community in Denmark.
