Data Science for Social Good

Now seeking applications for the Penn Data Science for Social Good seed grants.

The Data Driven Discovery initiative is investing in data science for social good. Data science for social good projects address societal challenges that affects the well-being of a large number of people, including health, public safety, justice, clean air and water, education, employment, transit, and political representation. DDD will be sponsoring several projects focusing on Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley, as well as projects focusing on national and global issues. Our data science for social good research blends the development or use of innovative data science methods, the advancement of scholarship within and across disciplines, and progress in addressing a societal challenge.

If your local government agency or service organization has a societal challenge that could be addressed with some data science attention, please contact us outlining your project.
