Event description

Description

Interested in learning more about data and doing some good along the way? On Saturday 29th of October Student Data Labs is running an Empty Housing Innovation Lab at the London campus of the University of Liverpool. 

Get Involved

If you're interested in addressing the housing crisis with data then this is the place to be! 

The Empty Housing Innovation Labs is designed for students but all are welcome. If you're affiliated with a university then tickets are free. Otherwise, a small charge applies for non-students.

Student Data Labs offers a place for all, regardless of background, to learn about real-world data skills whilst working on projects that have a social purpose. In the past we've held Innovation Labs that have focused on road casualties and health inequalities.

Aims

Our aim is to explore how to address the problem of long-term empty homes in London. The Innovation Lab will take an interdisciplinary approach - using open data and analytics alongside other disciplines -  to tackle what is now a major aspect of the housing crisis in the city. We'll also be running a small project-focused Data Workshop for volunteers to learn practical data skills.

The Labs are a joint collaboration between the Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC), UCL and Student Data Labs.


How will the Lab be run?

During the first session volunteers will be able to choose what they'd like to get out of the event. If you'd like to learn data skills then the Data Workshop is the place to be. If you're interested in exploring how to address the problem then volunteers can join the separate Innovation Lab. After lunch, the two groups merge.
