CorrelAid has almost become a tradition in Konstanz!
As the “birthplace” of CorrelAid, the small university town on the lake has always had a large circle of data science enthusiastic students. In order to fill this tradition with life, the Local Chapter Konstanz was founded in 2019 and has since then organized several R-workshops, data roundtables and data hackdays in cooperation with the data journalism team of SWR. Also a project with the NPO “Studieren ohne Grenzen” (Study without borders) could be realized.
A close cooperation with the Open-Data Portal of the City of Konstanz is planned for 2020. As you can see, Konstanz has not only CorrelAid tradition, its own local chapter and a lake to offer, but also a great Data4Good future.

Phil is currently studying Social & Economic Data Science for his Master's degree and, as a former student of Political and Administrative Sciences at the University of Konstanz, there was no chance of getting around CorrelAid.
Nico is currently studying his Bachelor's degree in political and administrative sciences. The combination of this degree and a keen interest in Data Science for Good inevitably led to his involvement with CorrelAid.
