KNIME Teaching Grants for Data Science Education

August 1, 2022 — by Stefan Helfrich

KNIME is looking to improve undergraduate and postgraduate data science and data analytics education by offering KNIME Teaching Grants.

With KNIME Analytics Platform we already offer educators an open source low code platform for teaching data analytics, data engineering, data science, and AI to students in any discipline. To build upon this, the new KNIME Teaching Grants will support the development of innovative teaching concepts and new educational materials that leverage KNIME for data science education. Examples of materials include slides or videos on specific topics, lab exercises or student challenges with reusable data, and instructive use-cases or workflow examples.

Each project will be supported by a grant of $ 5000 from KNIME.

We envision that materials created with the support of this grant are shared (with a permissive license) on the KNIME Teaching Materials Repository to facilitate re-use by educators and members of the KNIME Educators Alliance and others.

Please contact us at educators@knime.com in case of questions.
