Our Vision

Data Science Portugal aims to be the reference community in Portugal for Data Science and related domains. To become a networking platform for people and companies with interest in the area. An open forum for sharing knowledge, exchange experiences and discuss ideas. An informal environment where industry meets academia, professionals meet enthusiasts, experienced meet interested.

To fulfill this vision, we set ourselves to organize face-to-face events, such as frequent meetups in different cities, workshops for all experience levels and conferences with national scope; to manage and leverage knowledge sharing platforms like our site, our Slack and social networking groups; to have a positive impact in the Data Science environment in Portugal overall.
