Next Meetup

HIVHACK - Workshop #5 - First data visualisation results
High time to roll up our sleeves and do some data4good. We had 4 excellent workshops introducing us to the HIV DRUG resistance problem. We currently have 3 datasets as we have just added a third one about the viral load. The information is available on our website and also stored on . We have a forum to discuss the different issues . In the previous workshop Jenny explained the content of her global dataset and Serge explained what he did to get more information on Tanzania. Our next workshop will be about going into more depth on these 2 different datasets and show some examples of data visualisation. We also invite people to help us gathering more datasets and to step up and present what they have found. Please use eventbrite to reserve your seat & your dinner.

• We love doing Data4Good.

• We promote the value of analytics and organise events, hands-on sessions and trainings to close the gap between academics and business.

• Join us if you want to share, learn and have fun with analytical & technological innovation & positive social change.


Our members all want to contribute with their professional skills to make a positive impact on our local community or in the world, they are all aware that data based decision making is key to boost the performances of our organisations. We are an open community and everybody with an interest in data and business is welcome. Our members are University professors, managers in public or private organisations, leaders of NGO’s, Phd students, analytic consultants, technical bigdata experts …


Our activities are geared around breaching that gap between what the industry need and what the academic institutions has to offer. We focus on knowledge sharing by organising monthly meetups and training sessions. We also provide the possibility for datascientists to work on real ‘Data for Good’-projects where our members offer their help to NGO’s, public intitutions and Startups to gain value out of their data .
