Dear Researchers and Students,
Join us on May 19 at 4-5pm ET for the next COVID Information Commons research lightning talks webinar! Develop new insights and potentially new collaborations to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. Five NSF funded researchers will share their research focus and findings, and answer questions from the community. We hope to see you there! A list of speakers is below…
The COVID Information Commons (CIC) is an open website (https://covidinfocommons.net) for researchers, students and decision-makers from academia, government, nonprofit, 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 CIC launched in July 2020 as an NSF-funded project 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.
