Advisory Board

Lucy Chambers

has co-developed the international School of Data network and is co-author of the reference work for data-driven journalism: “Data Journalism Handbook”. She is product owner at eHealth Africa.

Nowadays we are overwhelmed by data. School of Data is the live-guard that saves you in today’s data flooding and brings everything under control.

Kristina Klein

was CEO of the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany from August 2014 to June 2017. Previously, she worked as Peace Building Fund Coordinator with UNHCR in Myanmar and Program Manager of Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, as wells as the Körber Foundation.

To a great extent data remains an unused resource in civil society organisations. Only few organisations have the expertise and tools to develop meaningful insights with data. We wish to change that.

Friedrich Lindenberg

supports journalists in the evaluation of public information and develops software for investigative data analysis.

Rather than making dazzling demands, having strong evidence on what is going on and what needs to change is what makes an organisation powerful. Data is the soil that creative and digitally competent associations can use to provoke change in society.
