Data Literacy in Context (DaLiCo)

The Erasmus+-funded international project “Data Literacy in Context” brings together four European Universities of Applied Sciences with the mutual mission to foster data literacy education: HAW Hamburg as the Coordinator of the project, Stichting Hogeschool Utrecht, University of Debrecen and Universitat Politècnica de València as partners. The project DaLiCo is focusing on increasing the visibility, quality and usage of existing Data Literacy activities at the participating universities.

The objectives of the project result in five interconnected sub-projects: the compilation of data literacy resources leading to a so-called Data Literacy Map, a tried and tested Train-the-Trainer concept, a concept for data literacy learning spaces, a measurement and assessment tool for data literacy activities, and finally a pilot concept for the regional implementation of common international data literacy standards of the partners.
