DAta science
for social good

We help non-profit, non-governmental and governmental organizations harness the power of their data to improve its impact on the community.

Who are we?

Data Science for Social Good Portugal is an open community of data scientists, data lovers and data enthusiasts that want to tackle problems that really matter. We believe in the power of data to transform our society for the better, for everyone.

How can an organization benefit from data?

Optimize Resources

Resources are often scarce for an organization. Using data, you can manage the application of your resources more wisely.

Maximize efficiency

Data has the power to bring an analysis closer to reality. Thus, the decision-makers can make the best decision in view of the circumstances in a future scenario.

Increase Impact

An organization's mission is its promise. Data can reveal how much impact your programs are having on the community or area where you operate.

How do we work



We meet with a member of the beneficiary working on projects with social impact to better understand their problems and data sources.


We assemble a group of volunteers to work as a team. We select people with all types of data skills willing to work on concrete social good projects.


Volunteers work alongside the organization in a project aiming at transforming their data into actionable knowledge that can increase their social impact.
