The Datalit project – A joint research project to spread Data Literacy at the interface of higher education and business – aims to create the basis for the integration of data literacy as a transversal theme in potentially all university courses by identifying and developing common curricula and innovative teaching and learning approaches.

Based on a 4-step approach (blended learning, development of training resources, piloting of methodology and validated competences in relation to data literacy), the project focuses on three target groups: university students, education and human resource professionals, and evaluators and validation practitioners.

On 22-23 January 2020, the kick-off meeting took place in Palermo, Italy, at the invitation of the CNR (Italian National Research Council – Institute for Educational Technologies). The Knowledge Alliance of 14 experienced partners from 6 European countries discussed the major challenges regarding future activities as well as administrative issues.

Already during the first meeting, a strong partnership emerged, looking forward to the first phase of the project.
