DDSA

Education & Networking Committee

The DDSA Education & Networking Committee evaluates and prioritises applications for DDSA’s Large Course and Event Grants, monitors and develops DDSA’s event and course grant programmes, and provides strategic input on the need for new DDSA-driven activities. The committee members are also engaged in developing these new activities together with the DDSA Secretariat, e.g. taking part in setting up the scientific programme of our annual conference. The committee consists of 12 members representing a diverse group of committed data science researchers and professionals working across sectors in the broad field of data science in Denmark.

About the DDSA Education & Networking Committee

The DDSA Education and Networking Committee meets 3-5 times a year, two of the meetings typically in person and the rest virtually. Further, there are ad hoc planning meetings for the individual activities.

The Chair of the DDSA Education & Networking Committee is appointed by the DDSA Board of Directors and participates in most Board-meetings as a non-voting member.

The Education & Networking Committee appoints the DDSA Young Academy Panel, the DDSA Cross Academy Collaboration Committee, and members of the Scientific Programme Committee for our annual conference.

A Committee member can still apply for DDSA grants.

The DDSA Education & Networking Committee works in accordance with DDSA Conflicts of Interest.
