The LISA 2020 Global Network

Building Statistics and Data Science Capacity in Developing Countries

The LISA 2020 Global Network trains statisticians and data scientists from developing countries to become interdisciplinary collaborators and supports them in the creation of statistics and data science collaboration laboratories — “stat labs”— at their home institutions. Stat labs are training the next generation of collaborative statisticians and data scientists and providing critical research infrastructure to apply statistics and data science to transform evidence into action toward solving real-world problems. More about the LISA 2020 Global Network.

The goal was to create a network of 20 Stat Labs in developing countries by 2020. We accomplished it by having 28 labs in the LISA 2020 Global Network by the end of 2020!
