Venturn has launched a new transformational Data Science Programme they have developed with their partners to bring data to life for the maritime and logistics sector. The part-time programme commences on Monday 16 January 2017 and is open to 12 participants in the first round.

The unique programme features 10 modules delivered over 12 months enabling attendees to generate business value after each module with cutting edge, yet practical concepts, ideas, and tools with which to build and strengthen data programmes in their own working environments.

This programme will create pioneers in the field of data science who can discover business improvements and identify break-through opportunities.”  Patrick van de Ven, Founding Partner of Venturn
