Base de Dados Social | Social Database
The social sector represents an important sector of the Portuguese economy.However, the few data sources available provide little and disconnected pieces of information, a low level of interaction and poor visualizations. In order to overcome this gap of information, the goal of the project is to create a new and integrated database for the social sector to be at the disposal of the Portuguese society, serving NGOs, foundations, impact-driven companies,researchers, investors, Government agencies, among other stakeholders. The Social Database platform is being developed by Nova SBE Data Science Knowledge Center under the Social Equity Initiative,a partnership between the ”la Caixa” Foundation, BPI and Nova SBE.
