Accelerating the Big Data Innovation Ecosystem

The Midwest Big Data Hub, based at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications(NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is a partnership with theUniversity of MichiganIowa State UniversityIndiana University, and the University of North Dakota that serves 12 midwestern states. MBDH builds relationships in academia, industry, and government to develop an effective cross-sector networks ready to utilize data and data science to solve shared problems of regional and societal interest.

NSF Midwest Big Data Hub supports Big Data science and partnerships in Agriculture and Plant Sciences

In March 2016 the Division of Computer and Information Systems and Engineering (CISE) of the National Science Foundation established four national Big Data Hubs as part of its investment in the 2015 NSF Big Data Research and Development Initiative. 

IANR NEWS: UNL participating in multi-institution project focused on Big Data

Lincoln, NE, October 2016- The University of Nebraska–Lincoln, in partnership with the University of North Dakota, Iowa State University and Kansas State University, is participating in a multi-state, multi-institution Digital Agriculture Spoke grant of roughly $1 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

GPN Plays Role in NSF Big Data Spoke Award
In March 2012, the Obama Administration launched the Big Data Research and Development Initiative to improve the ability to solve some of the nation's most pressing challenges byextracting knowledge and insights from large, complex collections of digital data. The BD Hubs,announced last year, are one way NSF is addressing this need by fostering multi-sector collaborations among academia, industry and government, and bringing together a wide range of stakeholders to solve regional challenges.

SEEDCorn: UNL joins ‘brain trust for data science’

In response to the National Science Foundation’s National Big Data Research and Development Initiative: Accelerating the Big Data Innovation Ecosystem, federal agencies, private industry, academia, state and local governments, non-profits, and foundations have come together to help to solve some of the Nation’s most pressing R&D challenges related to extracting knowledge and insights from large, complex collections of digital data through big data research and infrastructure development; education and workforce development; and multidisciplinary collaborative teams and communities that address complex science and engineering challenges.

Establishing a ‘brain trust for data science’

November 2, 2015

The ability to access, analyze and draw insights from massive amounts of data already drives innovation in areas ranging from medicine to manufacturing, leading to greater efficiency and a higher quality of life.

To accelerate this emerging field, the National Science Foundation (NSF) today announced four awards totaling more than $5 million to establish regional hubs for data science innovation.
