Dear Colleagues,

The Directorate for Geosciences cyberinfrastructure (GEO CI) group would like to call your attention to two opportunities related to cyberinfrastructure and advanced data science. Applications from geoscientists with interest and expertise in these areas are due in early March.

EarthCube Solicitation NSF 16-514
EarthCube aims to create a well-connected and facile environment to share data and knowledge in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner, thus accelerating our ability to understand and predict the Earth system. The following opportunities for support are described in Amendment VII to this solicitation. An informational webinar will provide more information on the support available.

Solicitation: https://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf16514

  *   EarthCube Science-Enabling Data Capabilities – Deadline date: March 5, 2019
  *   Research Coordination Networks (RCN) – Target date: March 14, 2019
  *   Science adoption supplement requests – Contact an EarthCube Program Director
  *   Data resource adoption supplement requests – Contact an EarthCube Program Director
Informational webinar: Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at 2 PM EST (https://nsf2.webex.com/nsf2/j.php?MTID=m414cb0b67e87dfd280d832156538a349)

Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR)
NSF’s Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) is a national-scale activity to enable new modes of data-driven discovery that will allow fundamental questions to be asked and answered at the frontiers of science and engineering. The HDR vision is realized through an interrelated set of activities and funding opportunities.  Each of these efforts is designed to amplify the intrinsically multidisciplinary nature of the emerging field of data science.

Deadline Updates for HDR Solicitations:
Due to the recent 35-day lapse in appropriations and shutdown of the agency, NSF will be extending the deadline dates for the HDR solicitations noted below:
