We have the honor of presenting the Data Science Awards Spain 2016, the first initiative in Spain to recognize analytical talent and to highlight the work of data science professionals. The event aims to guarantee the growth of this discipline and to motivate younger generations to demonstrate their talent. The initiative, led by Synergic Partners and with support from Telefónica, hopes to become an event of reference within the scientific community and society.
There will be three categories of awards presented: Best Data Scientist in Spain, Best Data Journalism Story in Spain and Best Big Data Business Initiative in Spain, covering the main categories leading the implementation of data-based strategies and culture in society.
The awards will be presented to the press on May 31 and registry for participation will be open until June 30. While the categories of Best Data Journalism Story in Spain and Best Big Data Business Initiative in Spain will be evaluated through the submission of applications, the award for Best Data Scientist in Spain will have a contest format in which the participants will have to face a series of challenges. Within that category, there will be three awards, for Data Scientist, Data Engineer and Data Engineer, as well as ten honorable mentions.
The judges’ decision as well as the presentation of the awards will be in September.
