This is the first time a Norwegian doctoral program has received this prestigious grant. The project was one of 13 selected from 65 applications from across Europe, receiving a 99 % score. The program builds on the competence developed in Center for Computing and Science Education (CCSE), a Center for Excellence in Education at the University of Oslo that aims to integrate computational skills into science education across all levels.
“There is an enormous need for professionals with deep digital competence in Norway and across Europe”, says CCSE director and CompSci project leader, Professor Anders Malthe-Sørenssen. “We believe all researchers should build solid skills in computing and data science, in addition to a disciplinary basis. “
