Data Science for Social Good: dssg-eu.org
The Data Science for Social Good Fellowship started at the University of Chicago in 2012. It is a summer program to train aspiring data scientists to work on data mining, machine learning, big data, and data science projects with social impact. Working closely with governments and nonprofits, fellows take on real-world problems in education, health, energy, public safety, transportation, economic development, international development, and more.
In 2017, for the first time, DSSG started in Europe, organized by Nova School of Business and Economics in collaboration with the University of Chicago.
Fellows of DSSG spend three months in Lisbon over summer to learn, hone, and apply their data science, analytical, and coding skills, collaborate in a fast-paced atmosphere, and learn from mentors coming from industry and academia.
CS Research is a partner of DSSG and Euro Beinat is a member of the Organizing Committee.
