Code for Science & Society ("CSS") is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization committed to improving access to data for the public good.
At CSS we work to advance the technology behind data sharing to empower public education, scientific research, and technology development and deployment. We work to improve the public’s ability to find, collect, and share the data they use to make more informed decisions in the benefit of the public interest.
We work at the intersection of technology with three areas: science, journalism and government. Our goal is to help these areas make better use of technology to accomplish their goals and help create more openness, transparency and collaboration.
Our main function is to build, promote and train these communities on data management, sharing and search tools they can use to make better use of data in their work and to benefit the public at large.
