Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs: Establishing Spokes to Advance Big Data Applications (BD Spokes)

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 were established to foster multi-sector collaborations among academia, industry, and government, both nationally and internationally. BD Spokes extend the BD Hubs network by establishing multi-institutional and multi-sector collaborations to focus on topics of specific interest to a given region. Each BD Spoke will focus on a particular topic that requires Big Data approaches and solutions. The Big Data activities of a BD Spoke will be guided by the following broad themes:

Accelerating progress towards addressing societal grand challenges relevant to the regional and national priority areas defined by the BD Hubs (information on priority areas can be found on each Hub’s website listed in the Introduction section below);
Helping automate the Big Data lifecycle; and
Enabling access to and spurring the use of important and valuable available data assets, including international data sets where relevant.

This solicitation is not meant to fund proposals in which fundamental research is the primary activity. It is expected that the PIs of a BD Spoke proposal will have engaged in serious and in-depth discussions with their corresponding BD Hub PIs and Steering Committee prior to submitting their proposal. BD Spoke proposers (for both SMALL and MEDIUM Spokes) must seek formal approval from the regional BD Hub Steering Committee in the form of a Letter of Collaboration.

Estimated Program Funding: $10M total
Limit on Number of Applications: 1

Please see the full RFP for complete information.

DEADLINES:
Notification of Interest to ORE: 4/5/2017 12 p.m.
