The Data Lab innovation centre is launching a new CPD and Training programme for Industry and Public Sector in Scotland. Based on our research in the current market, we have identified three key areas of development; Technical, Ethics and Privacy and Leadership. Specific areas of focus for this call are:


  • Date science and ethics
  • Personal privacy
  • Big data architectures
  • Data wrangling
  • Data management
  • Data modelling
  • Data analysis
  • Data visualisation
  • Statistics
  • Machine learning

The Data Lab would like to invite Academics from Universities across Scotland to contribute to our CPD programme by proposing a training event in one of the above focus areas. Our aims is to include events of varying lengths and formats that will appeal to a diverse audience from technicians in industry and Public Sector to leaders with no data science experience. Through participation of our CPD and training programme, you will have the opportunity to develop connections into industry and Public Sector for further collaboration.
