|   The Data School

At the heart of The Information Lab Ireland is a belief in sustainability. We believe that businesses can use their skills and knowledge to improve society. We have started by supporting our team in projects they care deeply about and have this as a core value of our business.

#OpenDataStory promotes the gathering, publishing and use of open data to bring attention to issues of social importance. We invite advocates, NGOs and those working in the media to engage with us.

Here you will find links to our blog posts. We will update our work on a regular basis.
