A new statewide consortium launched this fall to improve data science capacity in Kansas. The hub aims to prepare college students for high-demand jobs while helping Kansas businesses, towns, and organizations harness digital information.

With funding from the National Science Foundation Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, NSF EPSCoR, the project is part of a new initiative aimed at advancing resilient infrastructures. Enhancing data science capacity is a key part of this major statewide initiative.

As reported by Gryffin Eason at the University of Kansas on 9/27/2022, the consortium will incorporate real-world data sets into student learning. It is seeking community organizations of all types to partner and share data.
