The Summer School on Data Science will bring together leading experts in data science and the next generation of STI scholars. The aim is to equip the latter with both the methodological and conceptual knowledge as well as cutting edge data science tools and techniques.

The course is open to all career levels including PhD students, early career researchers and established researchers. The target group will have some experience with the quantitative methods in the topic including some statistical analysis, while the Summer School will help them to reach to a more advanced level of understanding.


At the end of the course, participants will become familiar with the basic workflow of data science, critical choices you need to make to conduct a data science analysis with publication data as well as the assumptions behind metrics and approaches, and Advanced analysis of publication data through descriptive and exploratory modelling, network analysis and text-mining.
