Improve your data skills


A team of enthusiastic lecturers from member institutions of the U Bremen Research Alliance voluntarily created our common curriculum. The training provided by our member institutions is targeted at doctoral researchers and open
to all interested in strengthening their data skills, if capacities are available.

Doctoral researchers can complete the tracks in their entirety or attend only individual lectures. We confirm participation in lectures after completion of the respective track (by a ‘Certificate of Participation’). Please find further information on our Data Train website.

The Data Train program offers a flexible and crossdisciplinary curriculum, with lectures tailored towards the participants’ prior knowledge and interests.

Tracks

In the Operator Track ‘Data Steward’, essential competencies for the efficient handling of data in accordance with the „FAIR data principles“ (data should be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) are taught. FAIR data form the basis for sustainable and future-oriented research that exploits its potentials. The track includes hands-on workshops on programming languages, versioning, data management plans, reproducibility, data preparation, data provisioning, and database skills.

Data science is concerned with extracting information and gaining knowledge from data using computational analysis methods such as statistical techniques, but also artificial intelligence (e.g. machine learning). In the Operator Track ‘Data Scientist’ participants learn methods from mathematics, statistics, artificial intelligence and computer science for data analysis as well as data visualization skills.
