As data availability and analytical methods rapidly advance,
World Bank operations and research teams are increasingly seeking data-related support,
from alternative data acquisition (e.g., social media companies, drones),
to modern data science and geospatial analytical methods and web-based dissemination solutions
-- where is a Bank colleague to begin?
The Data Corps is a rotating cohort of multi-disciplinary data specialists, tasked with providing “one-stop-shop” high-level advisory to researchers and task teams on their data and analytical needs. Task teams benefit by working colleagues drawn from World Bank operations, research and corporate VPUs, selected for their Bank experience and technical accomplishments. Data Corps cohorts learn from working on a range of data challenges, while building critical social and technical networks between units and teams.
