Much work is currently being done in developing and applying competency
frameworks, both in bioinformatics and in data science.
In the context of ELIXIR Training, we aim to build on the existing
expertise in this area and, together with the training stakeholders, to
derive a proper implementation strategy.
This international workshop will bring together individuals from
organisations and projects who have expertise in defining and in applying
competency bioinformatics and data science frameworks in their own

In a series of interactive sessions, we will build on the existing
knowledge and work towards the following workshop goals:

   - Identify competency frameworks that are relevant to the ELIXIR user
   community and learn about successful implementation examples of these
   - Further define the relevant “personas” we are targeting with (ELIXIR)
   - Extract from the existing work a set of core competencies and sets of
   KSAs (knowledge, skills and abilities) that can subsequently be used:

   - to map courses in TeSS, the ELIXIR Training Portal
      - to build a curriculum for a one-week Advanced Bioinformatics
      Workshop (which will be part of the CODATA RDA Research Data
Science Summer
      school series)
      - to set the first steps towards defining routes through a specific
      set of courses (learning paths)

*Target audience*
Individuals working in training and education who are interested in
learning the state of the art about bioinformatics and data science
competency frameworks and their application to date.
