Understanding a data-driven society

Data Science for Social Good (DS for Social Good)

Tilburg University is challenging data scientists to work on social data science projects that really matter, data science for social good (DS for Social Good). Our professors, PhD-candidates, students and external data scientists collaborate, explore and try to find solutions for various social challenges, working in small teams. We team up with governments and non-profits, to help them gain insight in their data sets en answer the questions raised. Questions concerning difficult social challenges of today’s society: issues like health, human rights, education, and unemployment.

Funding
