The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC)
The use of data in international development continues to dominate the landscape for the future of poverty reduction and economic growth. MCC is committed to using and sharing data in the design, implementation, and evaluation of grant investments.
To that end, in 2015 MCC hosted its first Open Data Challenge. The Open Data Challenge is an opportunity for Masters and PhD students around the globe to submit papers that make innovative use of data collected in MCC's independent evaluations.
Join us to discuss the winning author's innovative work on the benefits of MCC-funded roads in Nicaragua, and insights into better use and accessibility of MCC’s data from the work of our honorable mention author. Attendees will also learn about the next Open Data Challenge for 2016.
