Our Story


Our Story


 

Governments across the globe have enormous potential and drive, but many face immense social and economic hurdles.

 
 
 
 

The social impact sector seeks high-impact, scalable ways to address program or policy challenges that can be implemented effectively.

That's why the IIC, a program based at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, sends top talent to work with government and nonprofits on one to three year projects to implement innovative solutions to important public issues.

The Applied Data and Governance Fellowship embeds fellows with strong data skills into local government and non-profit organizations across the United States

 
 
 
 

In recent years, data-driven analysis has become an important part of policy development. While governments and non-profits are increasingly investing in data analysis capabilities, there still remains a significant gap between data analysis and actual policy implementation.

The IIC aims to provide a bridge between data and policy through a new one-year U.S. based fellowship in applied data and governance.

IIC projects span areas including urban development, energy and the environment, health care, innovation and education.

 
 
 

Each project has an ambitious mission, but a discrete scope. Teams works with the government or nonprofits to identify and solve specific problems, or with project partners to scale existing solutions. Working with the government offers unparalleled opportunities for solutions to achieve large scale.
