Invitation to the Expert Meeting on Measuring Impact in the Age of the Data Revolution!
This expert meeting on 29 March in the Hague will bring together professionals from a variety of organizations who are working on impact measurement or with innovative flows of data, and who are eager to expand their knowledge on innovative data analysis techniques and usage to feed the way we measure and monitor impact.
The world is in the midst of an ongoing data revolution. Billions of people, among them some of the world’s poorest, are now consumers, producers, and aggregators of digital information, leaving a massive data footprint every day. The stories and statistics that can be distilled from this mountain of data present staggering new possibilities as well as challenges for the practice of impact measurement in the development and humanitarian sectors.
This one-day event will introduce successful examples of how the data revolution can be harnessed in development and humanitarian settings, both on the side of data collection and analysis. Participants will hear directly from experts working with the data revolution in their own sectors and will work collaboratively to apply these innovations to impact measurement challenges they face in their own organizations.
The day is kicked off with a keynote session on the innovation process and human centered design. Following, participants can choose the workshops of their liking, based on short pitches from the experts. The workshops are organized in three tracks:
1. Using innovative sources of data
2. Human-centered design and user centric approaches
3. Data in the field
This meeting will bring together professionals from a variety of organizations who are working on impact measurement or with innovative flows of data, and who are eager to expand their knowledge on innovative data analysis techniques and usage to feed the way we measure and monitor impact.
