About us

WE LOVE DATA

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.

 

Our Mission: connect people who have data skills with (public, governmental, private or non-profit) institutions that work on projects with social impact helping them collect and transform data into actionable knowledge to increase their impact and ultimately improve the future of society with today’s data.

Our Community

We are a non-profit organization that brings together data professionals and institutions working with social projects that will benefit from using data more effectively to solve their needs and challenges.

We are composed of a lead team (transversal to DSSG PT), a group of volunteers (project based), advisors and an ethics committee..

Lead Team

We work pro-bono in four main areas: volunteer management, communication, sponsors/partners, and beneficiaries management, trying to create impactful projects together with our volunteers.
