*um on tour: dates & events in March 2017

For the IT industry the month of March is inevitably connected with CeBIT, the world's largest computer trade fair, which takes place in Hanover. You will be able to meet us there, but as we’re only visitors we won’t be there every day. Our event priorities are little different: essentially we are focusing on promoting good ideas and innovative solutions. And maybe we won’t just meet and chat – we could even work together on new approaches...

Data Science for Social Good Data Dive // March 17–19, Berlin

The DSSG Data Dive is back following its successful debut last year. A data dive brings together data scientists and NGO representatives to try to find approaches for the real (and digital) challenges that the NGOs face. This year the event will be supporting two non-profits: the German Cancer Society and the initiative SchulePLUS. The challenge for the former is to catalog scientific cancer literature, while the latter’s goal is to give children the chance to have a good internship regardless of the financial background or social status of their parents. At the event the data scientists will be looking for an approach to support them digitally.

This year we’re also not just on board as a sponsor: our data experts Klaas, Ulf, Jana and Martin will also be getting involved to offer a helping hand. Are you a data scientist and up for spending a weekend working with us for a good cause? If so, register here free of charge.
