Wolfram Research and UNI-C Launch Nordic Education Centre: Mathematica
Training Now Offered in Nordic Countries
February 18, 2004--An agreement signed between Wolfram Research and
UNI-C, the Danish IT Centre for Education and Research, marks the launch
of a joint venture called the Nordic Education Centre (NE-C). Based in Denmark, NE-C
brings certified Mathematica courses to Denmark,
Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland for the first time. Classes will be
held in UNI-C's state-of-the-art facilities in Copenhagen and Århus,
"Our partnership with UNI-C is the logical culmination of a long and
fruitful relationship that has developed between our two organizations.
Those looking for Mathematica training in the Nordic countries could not
ask for a more professional and committed organization than UNI-C to
provide this needed service," says Paul Wellin, manager of
NE-C courses promise to provide inspiration and new skills to both
amateur and seasoned Mathematica users. Courses on complex data
analysis, modeling, and symbolic calculation should attract
developers, IT architects, business analysts, project managers, and
others who work with data. Businesses can tailor classes according to
their interests and choose from short- or long-term options.
Wolfram Research hopes the collaboration is the first in a series of
similar partnerships dedicated to promoting Mathematica training abroad.
"We have been expanding our Mathematica training offerings around the
globe for the past two years now. We are truly pleased and excited to
partner with UNI-C to extend this effort to the Nordic countries,"
Outside of the U.S., Mathematica courses are organized by affiliates known
as Certified Training Providers. The alliance between Wolfram Research
and NE-C makes the Danish organization both a Certified Training Provider
and a Wolfram Research Expertise Partner. As a training
provider, Kurt Bøge, chief consultant of NE-C, can teach official
Mathematica courses as well as train additional instructors. As an
Expertise Partner, NE-C is supported with special
discounts on training kits, free training for NE-C personnel, and
enhanced marketing support from Wolfram Research.
public institution under the Danish Ministry of Education, is
Denmark's largest provider of information technology solutions for
education and research. More than 500,000 people use UNI-C's IT
products and services, which range from technical
connection to pedagogical tools.
