May 17. Brown Institute heads to Panama!


In 2015, the Brown Institute funded the Nueva Nación team in Panama to create the country's first truly accessible public data platform, El Tabulario, and now they're finally ready to launch. On May 26th and 27th, we'll be hosting journalists, computer scientists, and students in Panama City to pore over the team's compiled data and explore new story ideas with the country's untapped statistics. 

The Nueva Nación team is particularly excited about exploring student-teacher ratio data for public schools, never-before seen historical government payroll data, government spending and budgeting numbers, the country's debt numbers, and private and public credit consumption data.

Established in 2012, the Institute is a collaboration between Columbia and Stanford Universities. Our mission is simple: Sponsor thinking, building and speculating on how stories are discovered and told in a networked, digitized world.
