Athena's work cuts across the policy research value chain and is driven by three simple questions. How can we collect (reliable) data more efficiently? How can we analyse it more creatively? How can we make our interventions / solutions more user-friendly? We use our understanding of data science approaches, our ability to leverage technology and our exposure to sector-linked implementation challenges to evolve better ways of answering these questions and to expand the frontiers of how ‘decisions are made’ and ‘impact is achieved’.
