We’re becoming a part of the global data network. Thanks to advances in data algorithms, new and previously unseen data is adding different perspectives on subjects that affect everyone's life. As more and more data are collected, stored, processed and disseminated, the question is how to make sense of this data and information.
DataLEADS’ boot camps answer this call, emphasising the data collection, timely analysis and communication skills that are needed for to understand and visualise data related to key areas such as healthcare. We believe good decision-making depends on people having access to reliable and accurate facts and information.
DataLEADS has been engaged in a unique collaboration with journalists, data scientists, medical doctors and policy makers using data-analytics and watchdog reporting skills to promote and strengthen data-research and data-driven reporting across Asia. We’ve conducted data boot camps in different Asian countries in collaboration with global organisations such as Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (Germany), GIJN (USA) and United Nations Foundation.
The boot camps are a mixture of expert briefings, discussions and data exercises. These are designed to provide opportunities for participants to engage with a broad network of industry experts, policy makers and data organisations, government agencies and private-sector businesses.
“The data boot camps are building a data community in Asia which will eventually push for better information, debate & decisions and good governance in the region.”
