NSF Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs: Establishing Spokes to Advance Big Data Applications

NSF call for IU researchers to help establish spokes about a particular topic that requires Big Data approaches and solutions.

IU's Pervasive Technology Institute is happy to help any IU researcher who would like to work with them on preparation of a proposal for the internal-to-IU competition for the right to submit a proposal to the National Science Foundation. IUPTI will particularly aid proposal writers in terms of making commitments in terms of resources, as well as aiding them in writing technical cyberinfrastructure elements of their proposal.
 
Brief Description of the program:
NSF's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) initiated the National Network of Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs (BD Hubs) program in FY 2015. Four BD Hubs – Midwest, Northeast, South, and West – were established to foster multi-sector collaborations among academia, industry, and government, both nationally and internationally. These BD Hubs are serving a convening and coordinating role by bringing together a wide range of Big Data stakeholders in order to connect solution seekers with solution providers.
 
In FY 2016, the Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs: Establishing Spokes to Advance Big Data Applications (BD Spokes) solicitation began extending the BD Hubs network by establishing multi-institutional and multi-sector collaborations to focus on topics of specific interest to a given region. The first set of BD Spokes was funded in FY 2016. This solicitation calls for new BD Spoke proposals to be awarded in FY 2018. Collaborating with BD Hubs, each BD Spoke will focus on a particular topic that requires Big Data approaches and solutions. The set of activities managed by a BD Spoke will promote progress towards solutions in the chosen topic area. The regional BD Hub Steering Committee will provide general guidance to each BD Spoke and will assist the BD Spoke in coordinating with the national BD Hub network, with other BD Spokes, and with the broader innovation ecosystem.
