MOBILIZING THE HUB COMMUNITY OVERVIEW

The South Hub accelerates academic, industry, and community engagement in big data and data science by enabling networking and dialogue among stakeholders to assess their needs and increase the sharing of success stories, lessons learned, and best practices. In addition to the development of the Southern Region Data community, the South Hub also actively participates in the creation of a light-weight national coordination body through a National Coordination Committee (NCC) that allows the Hubs as a collective to respond to opportunities and scale insights across common goals.

 

IMPACT

  • 113+ yearly events and opportunities included in the newsletter by Hub partners
  • 150 virtual and in-person events that have attracted over 4700+ participants
  • 200+ All hands Meeting attendees

This project was an awardee of the 2020 South Big Data Hub SEEDS Program - Southern Engagement and Enrichment in Data Science. It is one of two awards funded in the Seed Grant's mid-range category of >$50,000. The PIs seek to launch a website that contains guides, videos, and other content to assist educators and instructors on teaching data science to their students.

The Harnessing the Data Revolution Input Coordination Activity is an All Hubs/NSF activity geared to surface and gather insights, recommendations, and ideas from the community. The recommendations were used by the HDR Steering Committee in a face-to-face meeting to organize and discuss needs for a national HDR network. This initiative is a national effort led by the South Big Data Hub, but supported by the Northeast, West, and Midwest Big Data Hubs.
