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 Michigan, Iowa State University, Indiana 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.
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.
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).

Today, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced $10 million in awards to 10 "Big Data Spokes" projects to initiate research on specific topics identified by the Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs (BD Hubs).
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.
