Join us at 3pm ET Wednesday, July 15 for a demo of the COVID Information Commons, hosted by Florence Hudson, Executive Director for the Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub, and brought to you by the Big Data Innovation Hubs. Learn how this NSF-funded platform supports collaboration among researchers studying COVID-19, and how your input can help us enhance the tool further for phase 2.
The COVID Information Commons (CIC) is an open website to facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration across various COVID research efforts, especially focusing on NSF-funded COVID Rapid Response Research (RAPID) projects, as well as other NSF-funded COVID or Coronavirus related awards including SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) and STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer). The CIC serves as a resource for researchers, students and decision-makers from academia, government, not-for-profits and industry to identify collaboration opportunities, to leverage each other’s research findings, and to accelerate the most promising research to mitigate the broad societal impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID Information Commons is funded by an NSF COVID RAPID Award #2028999, developed as a collaborative proposal led by the Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub hosted by Columbia University, in collaboration with the Midwest Big Data Innovation Hub, South Big Data Innovation Hub, and West Big Data Innovation Hub. The award commenced in May 2020 and ends in October 2020. It is expected that the COVID Information Commons will continue to be available after the award period.
