Project Summary:

The goal of this project is promote knowledge transfer to scientists, educators, students, and citizens within and beyond the Consortium by enhancing state CI, and to enable the community science that is required to address regional to global scientific and societal challenges.  (Official Press Release)

To meet this goal, the Consortium proposes three high priority objectives:

1. Increase connectivity and bandwidth. Significant effort will focus on promoting communication and collaboration by improving connectivity infrastructure within the Consortium. Proposed and future Consortium efforts related to improving research competitiveness, STEM education, and economic development rely on this basic infrastructure.

2. Enhance data and model interoperability. The Consortium will promote discovery by supporting community-based climate change science through enhanced interoperability between models and other software components, improved access to and usability of Consortium data products through the adoption of standards-based data management and access models, and new data assimilation, analysis, and visualization capabilities.

3. Utilize CI to integrate research with education. The Consortium will enhance learning by focusing particularly on graduate student and postdoctoral researcher development; extending cyber-enabled science education into middle and high schools and extracurricular programs; and improving outreach to business and industry.
