LeADS trains the new generation of LEgality Attentive Data Scientists required by the challenges of the data economy and the unfolding of the digital transformation scoping in the fields of computer science, law, economics, statistics, management, engineering, policy studies, and mathematics.
Courses will be regularly offered in English by the academic partner institutions; secondments at academic and industrial or regulatory entities; and individual project mentoring offered by both academic and non-academic participants. The three levels unfold in the training modules. The general training modules along with the transversal IT training module, which are fundamental in the integration protocol for both Computer Sciences and Social Sciences graduates, are co-taught by all the participating institutions. Each module is fully multidisciplinary and designed to involve both academics and non-academics to ensure the most effective interaction of the different professional and educational backgrounds. It will increase ESRs’ hard and soft skills, leading to improved employability both in and outside of academia.
Overall, during the research and training ESRs will acquire two main sets of skills. The first one relates to the hard knowledge of data scientists enriched with the needed knowledge taken out of social sciences and law in particular. Students will be exposed to algorithms and methods at the frontier of the State-of-the art, building analytical processes in different domains on behavioural and social mining.
