SEnDIng Project Final Conference


The final conference of the SEnDIng project will take place online on Saturday 21 November 2020. The main aim of the conference is two-fold:

- to present the results of the project and how they can be exploited by relevant stakeholders, i.e. higher education institutes, VET providers, enterprises and professionals that are involved in Data Science and IoT projects and
- to bring together the main stakeholders in order to present initiatives in the domain of education and training on Data Science and IoT and discuss the current and foreseen challenges and how they can be addressed.

We thus welcome the participation of educational institutions, VET providers, policy makers, enterprises and professionals (either individuals or associations) that are interested for the project results or have relevant experience or interesting information to share on the topic of the significant gap identified in the Data Science and IoT related skills and the market's high demand for such skills.
