“Data for Change” is part of the Social Equity Initiative, a partnership established among Nova SBE, ”la Caixa” Foundation, and BPI

Data for Change is a pioneering program in Portugal, which aims to identify Portuguese Social Impact Organizations that have a social/ environmental problem that can be solved through Data Science. The 2020 call had a 33% grow on applications compared to last year’s edition. After evaluating the 80 applications, the following projects were selected by the jury:

  • Identifying deviant behaviour patterns on the first sale of fish (in partnership with Agência Natureza Portugal – ANP/WWF and Docapesca), to be developed by the DSKC team in 2020
  • Creating a Product to Segment Donors and Predict Donors Churn for the Non-Profit Sector(in partnership with Fundação Assistência Médica Internacional), to be developed in partnership with the Master’s in Business Analytics
