We are looking forward to welcoming you all to our next remote Open Knowledge Lab Berlin!

As before, we will use the BBB instance of our friends in Ulm:

Time time, CfA’s deputy CEO, Chris Roper, discusses how the organisation drives data-driven projects in over 19 African countries. The over 100 projects include: (measuring air and water quality using low-cost sensors); WanaData (CfA’s 140+ strong, women-only data scientist and data journalism pan-African network); the African Drone network; digital forensic labs in East and Southern Africa dedicated to fighting misinformation and hate speech;, and the CfA PesaCheck fact-checking organisation, among others.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us beforehand. Just send us an e-mail to and we will get back to you shortly!
