In 2014 the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) launched its Innovation Fund,
through which big data has been identified as a key organizational priority.
In order to provide strategic direction to UNFPA’s big data initiatives,
the “Big Data Bootcamp” brings together UNFPA data specialists, as well as experts in academia, the private sector, United Nations sister agencies and the development community.
The meeting will employ an innovative “design thinking” methodology led by Betahaus Barcelona, designed to elicit unique insights and ideas, and drive creative solution-generation and will be technically supported by Data-Pop Alliance.
Participation in the Bootcamp is by invitation only.
Open to the Public: We invite you to join an exciting open networking event on Thursday 05 February at 5:30pm at Betahaus. Please click here for more information.
