The LISA 2020 Network

Building Statistics and Data Science Capacity in Developing Countries

The LISA 2020 Program trains statisticians and data scientists from developing countries to become interdisciplinary collaborators and supports them in the creation of statistics and data science collaboration laboratories — “stat labs”— at their home institutions. Stat labs are training the next generation of collaborative statisticians and data scientists and providing critical research infrastructure to apply statistics and data science to transform evidence into action toward solving real-world problems. More about the LISA 2020 Program.

The goal of LISA 2020 was to create a network of 20 Stat Labs in developing countries by 2020. We accomplished it by having 28 labs in our network by the end of 2020!

LISA 2020 is implemented by the University of Colorado Boulder’s Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis (LISA) in cooperation with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Accelerating Local Potential (ALP) Program under Cooperative Agreement Number: 7200AA18CA00022.
