Who are we

Based in Jakarta, the hub is at the centre of a growing regional capability in data and innovation which is being applied to local and global development challenges. While anchoring this pioneering capability in SE Asia, it connects this region to global leaders in data, technology and statistics.

Specifically, it will bring novel research-industry partnerships and multi-disciplinary expertise to improve the use of data and technology in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, whilst challenging old assumptions in the use of data in development.
