Advisory

Panel 

The DDSA Advisory Panel provides strategic recommendations to the DDSA Board of Directors for the crucial task of securing renewed funding for Danish Data Science Academy, as the current funding runs until the end of 2026. The Advisory Panel consists of 12 national and international members representing a diversity of expertise and experience in research and application of data science, as well as knowledge and ideas about how to grow data science in Denmark. The national members represent sectors other than academia, while the international members represent either academia, public or private sector. The Chair of the Advisory Panel is appointed by the DDSA Board of Directors and has a seat on the Board. The DDSA Advisory Panel is a merger of the former DDSA National Advisory Panel and the DDSA International Advisory Panel.

About the DDSA Advisory Panel

The DDSA Advisory Panel is a new panel which consists of 12 national and international members. National members are defined as being employed in Denmark. The DDSA Advisory Panel is a merger of the former DDSA National Advisory Panel and the former DDSA International Advisory Panel. The Chair of the Advisory Panel is appointed by the DDSA Board of Directors and has a seat as a voting member on the Board. The Advisory Panel’s responsibility is to provide strategic advice and recommendations for securing renewed funding for Danish Data Science Academy, as the current funding runs till end of 2026. The Advisory Panel will be advising the Board of Directors once, during 2025, in order for the Board of Directors to prepare for the re-application of funding. Hence, only 1-2 meetings during 2025 are expected for Advisory Panel members during the appointment period. A Panel member can still apply for DDSA grants. The Advisory Panel works in accordance with DDSA Conflicts of Interest
