The Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub builds partnerships to address societal challenges with data-driven solutions. We serve as a platform for collaboration among our stakeholders, harnessing the potential of big data and data science in multi-sector projects no single organization can tackle in isolation.  Part of the National Big Data Research and Development Initiative, we seek to accelerate America’s Big Data innovation ecosystem.

Our Data-Driven Community

Our network includes more than 650 individuals at over 200 organizations (and growing!), across 9 states representing the most densely populated region of the United States.

In partnership with the University of California at San Diego and New York Hall of Science, we recently conducted a social network analysis to better understand and assess the needs of our community. We’ll share insights gained from this research later in 2019—stay tuned!
