We're based in Hyderabad City, India. We're a team of scientists, designers, and technologists passionate about helping ideas grow. Our mission is to democratize science.
Who is science for? What can it do for the general public? How do we nurture research that has the kind of impact that can change the world? What is the value of science and scientific research? Perhaps most importantly, why is it so important that everyone should have the chance to be a scientist? Our goal is to answer these questions, by bringing together those interested in them.
This project involves building a compute resource/grid for data science researchers in Nigeria. This grid will connect several HPCs and clusters in different locations. This will (1) provide access to tools, programs and open data, a "playground" where data scientists can perform analyses on their data (2) serve as a platform for learning programming/computational skills for data science research (3) a warehouse for storing open data generated within Nigeria institutions. This will be open to all Nigerian Institutions.
UAEM's university report card evaluates institutions across given countries in their commitment to access to medicines developed by their academic community and beyond it, innovation in neglected areas of global health, open data and open access, and empowerment of students to address issues of access, innovation and transparency in global health. Grades are given based on data collected directly from universities and compiled through standardized online queries. Availability of and sharing of information pertaining to all metrics is also assessed as an indicator of open education.
