The Consulting Lab offers a place for university students to provide short-term data science consulting services for social enterprises working in Leeds and the Yorkshire region.
One of our main aims at Student Data Labs is to connect with organisations working in the local community. There are two ways we achieve this:
- Through our Consulting Lab we want to help SMEs, particularly social enterprises and charities, do more with their data and give university students the opportunity to volunteer their services for a good cause.
- Building on our networks we provide the opportunity for Data Lab Volunteers to link up with local employers.
Following the devastating floods in Leeds in December 2015, the Consulting Lab decided to reach out to small businesses in the area that had been affected. We offer our services on a pro bono basis, enabling student volunteers the chance to deliver valuable data insights for a worthy cause.
