On June1, 2022, we organised a launching conference to bring together our key partners, researchers and (potential) sponsors. Our aim was to inspire each other, share ABW’s vision and plans and explore opportunities for collaboration.
Nowadays Analytics significantly contributes to the success of companies. Our vision is that Analytics has the same potential to contribute to humanitarian and societal challenges. Our dream is to apply analytics and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals
We believe that analytics can contribute to solving the major challenges facing humanity: climate, hunger, deforestation, the extinction of flora and fauna, you name it. We’ve already seen the tremendous value that analytics can have for commercial organizations and the time is now ripe to harness their power to help solve these problems.
Achieve the SDGs through the application of analytics
This is how much impact our work can have
Curious to increase and broaden your impact?
We don’t want to restrict ourselves to a single SDG, and the problems we’re addressing are global. We’re looking for large NGOs, public institutions and nonprofits with a global focus that are eager to work with us to achieve the SDGs by applying analytics. We welcome companies with expertise in IT, UX/UI, application development, data science and AI, or large corporations that wish to provide support, either by contributing funds, manpower for projects, or technology licenses and capacity. Philanthropic and charitable funds are also welcome, of course, as are volunteers with data science skills, or with project management or marketing skills.
"Join us, if you want to contribute to a Better World with Analytics!"

The personal motivation and vision from the team and our founders
Dick den Hertog (University of Amsterdam, ABW Institute) together with researchers from Tilburg University / ZHL and MIT / PEMPEM wrote a paper “Enhancing digital road networks for better operations in developing countries”.
We're excited to be covered by Change.inc: who visited our conference and wrote an article highlighting our vision, plans and impactful cases.
Our partner 510, in a pro-bono collaboration with ORTEC (founder of Analytics for a Better World), developed a framework to identify what Data & Digital Maturity looks like across multiple levels. This framework has been adopted in the IFRC’s Digital Transformation strategy to offer a vocabulary of Digital Transformation in multiple contexts and provide a basis to track the process.
