2017 marked the end of the initial five-year phase of Pulse Lab Jakarta (PLJ). One of the biggest highlights of the year was the increased adoption of our data tools and methods by our partners, especially within the public sector. The year has also seen a marked change in our engagement with our government counterparts — each collaborative research project that we do builds a stronger trust-based relationship, resulting in genuine dialogue on how new data sources and advanced data analytics can best inform priority policy issues.
The results that we achieved in 2017 were very much built on the experiments, mistakes and lessons that we have learned from during the first five years. As the Lab continues to evolve, our ability to adapt and course-correct during this learning phase ensured that Pulse Lab Jakarta continues to add value to our development partners and stakeholders.
Our 2017 Annual Report covers our passion for data innovation and much more. Thanks for being part of this journey!
Pulse Lab Jakarta is grateful for the generous support from the Government of Australia.
