EDUWORKS & Amsterdam Business School, Python Intro Course, 27-28 October
EDUWORKS, the EU-funded project coordinated from Amsterdam Business School, is organizing a two-day Introduction to Python Course, designed specifically for social scientists. The course will take place on the 27th and 28th of October, 10.00-15.00, on the Roetersisland Campus, room H2.01.
Social Scientists are increasingly expected to acquire knowledge in big data, data visualization, and interdisciplinary cooperation (the ”data science” framework). Furthermore, programming is a highly desirable skill for social scientists, thus participation in this course could provide you with necessary skills to continue improving programming skills on your own.
The course takes a ”learning by doing” approach, centered around developing programming solutions for common problems faced by social scientists. The goal of the course is not to focus on acquiring full-fledged set of programming skills, but rather to develop coding skills, which can be utilized along with quantitative research skills.

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and Data Science Center (DSC) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) are joining forces in a new joint fellowship for (teams of) researchers interested in exploring the intersection of data science and other disciplines. The first fellow of the new program, Dr. Davide Ceolin, will start his fellowship at the IAS on June 17. Ceolin is currently affiliated with CWI.
Nanda Piersma, lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), has been appointed as a crown member of the Social and Economic Counsil (SER). This is the first time that a lecturer has been appointed as member of the SER. Nanda Piersma was approached because of her expertise in the field of digitisation.
