The University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute, Darden School of Business, and Data Science Institute in partnership with the Northern Virginia Technology Council announce the Data Science for the Public Good Forum, an opportunity for civic engagement, comprised of a Distinguished Speaker Series and Annual Symposium.
The Data Science for the Public Good (DSPG) Forum builds on the Biocomplexity Institute's highly successful and distinctive DSPG research platform that leverages cutting-edge public policy analytics and unprecedented data access, and serves as an honest broker to identify, visualize, and understand the full complement of interests that affect the public good.
As central programs of the Forum, the Distinguished Speaker Series and Annual Symposium will bring together key public and private stakeholders to discuss how “doing data science” can support evidence-based policymaking and innovation to enhance the quality of life where we all live, learn, work, and play.
We can’t wait to begin these important conversations with you!
