National Science Foundation Establishes Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs

The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the creation of four Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs, which cover all 50 states and Washington, D.C., and have commitments from 250-plus organizations, such as universities, cities, foundations, and Fortune 500 companies. These hubs will serve as “brain trusts” that will conceive, plan, and support regional and national Big Data partnerships and activities.

The South Hub, coordinated by the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of North Carolina, plans to take on healthcare in the region, as well as coastal hazards and habitat planning. The Northeast Hub, coordinated by Columbia University, will prioritize areas such as energy, finance, data science for education, and the environment. The Midwest Hub, coordinated by the University of Illinois–Urbana-Champaign, will work on agriculture, smart cities, and the food, energy, and water nexus. The West Hub, coordinated by the University of California–San Diego, the University of California–Berkeley, and the University of Washington, will cover areas such as Big Data technologies and data-intensive discovery, as well as hazards and precision medicine.
