Earlier this month Robert Gordon University Aberdeen (RGU) announced the kick-off of our Knowledge Transfer Partnership. Beginning later in 2023. the partnership will last 24 months, bringing someone in from the academic world to enhance our knowledge and the effectiveness of our services to our clients.

Funded by InnovateUK, the primary aim of this Knowledge Transfer Partnership is to transfer expertise and best practise in data science and machine learning techniques between RGU and AquaTerra Group.

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership will bring about a close collaboration between the university and domain experts and data engineers at the company to understand the specific requirements of inspections tasks and inspection data, utilising expertise in data manipulation and transformation to optimise data for accurate model training.

We are looking for a Data Scientist to take up the challenge! Recruitment for the post is well underway, so if it is of interest to you (or someone in your network) follow this link to apply!
