ARDC Skills Landscape

The Australian Research Data Commons is driving transformational change in the research data ecosystem, enabling researchers to conduct world class data-intensive research. One interconnected component of this ecosystem is skills development/uplift, which is critical to the Commons and its purpose of providing Australian researchers with a competitive advantage through data.  

In this presentation, Kathryn Unsworth introduces the ARDC Skills Landscape. The Landscape is a first step in developing a national skills framework to enable a coordinated and cohesive approach to skills development across the Australian eResearch sector. It is also a first step towards helping to analyse current approaches in data training to identify:
- Siloed skills initiatives, and finding ways to build partnerships and improve collaboration
- Skills deficits, and working to address the gaps in data skills
- Areas of skills development for investment by skills stakeholders like universities, research organisations, skills and training service providers, ARDC, etc.
