The result of the project will be the identification and design of training programs dedicated to the future of big data professionals, the contents of which will be built on the basis of the actual needs of enterprises, so as to ensure the formation of Data Scientist ready to immediately enter the world of working with the right skills to meet the employability opportunities created by this new data science.
