The Data Science for Social Good Fellowship started at the University of Chicago in 2013. 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 the summer of 2017, for the first time, DSSG was held in Europe, organized by Nova School of Business and Economics in collaboration with the University of Chicago. Since then, the European team has been working closely with the global DSSG community to make DSSG Europe an annual event.
We are happy to welcome the fellows for three months at Nova SBE, 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.
DSSG is (growing into) a global network. DSSG Europe is a step in that direction.
