Location The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


The UK must train an increasingly large number of advanced data scientists, who combine high-level mathematics and programming ability with the deep domain knowledge and soft skills needed to work in business. These individuals are not only essential for the future productivity of the UK economy but are needed to handle the large datasets created across government and other organisations which underpin new fields of cutting edge research, such as climate change and genomics.

This meeting will focus specifically on the skills gap in data analytics and visualisation in the UK, primarily looking at science, technology and engineering industries and other employers of STEM data science graduates. It will aim to highlight the various roles data scientists are employed in, which skill sets are needed, the barriers data-using companies have in employing data scientists, and how our education and in-work training systems can create enough expert data scientists to fill the future gap. 

A full programme is available on the Royal Society website.
