CC* Team: Great Plains Regional CyberTeam was awarded by the National Science Foundation. (Award #1925681, https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1925681)
The Regional CyberTeam coordinated via the Great Plains Network will support and advance computational and data-intensive research across the region through the development of a mentor and mentee program. This sharing of information is an efficient way to complete the project’s objectives:
- Improve campus awareness and adoption of advanced cyberinfrastructure.
- Increase the number of campus research computing and data professionals at mentored institutions, especially for institutions with small IT staffs.
- Increase existing cyberinfrastructure capabilities.
- Increase the reproducibility of science.
- Produce best these methods can be implemented elsewhere.
The CyberTeam is cross-institutional. An experienced staff member (mentor) at one university is paired with eager learners (mentees) at another university. The mentor will be a full-time staff member, but the mentees can be full-time staff or student workers interested in cyberinfrastructure training.
