Meet Pulse Lab Jakarta

Our team works closely with UN agencies and government counterparts in Indonesia to get a better understanding of the policy and implementation issues they are grappling with and explore whether new data sources can provide useful insights that support decision making. We are not interested in research for research sake, but on results that benefit development.
For this reason, our team comprises a mix of skills: data crunchers and geeks, but also monitoring and evaluation, partnership building, policy and innovation and change management experts. Our typical working day can include defining research questions with partners, identifying ways to embed real time monitoring in existing programs, scanning the horizon for new approaches and research, building partnerships with local universities, running trainings on big data, and much more!
Our core team is working closely with partners from academia, civil society, the private sector to make sure that we incorporate a variety of perspectives in our analysis and our projects benefit from multi-disciplinary expertise.
