About the series
NSF has released a new solicitation titled "Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs: Establishing Spokes to Advance Big Data Applications (BD Spokes)" (NSF 17-546). This solicitation follows the first BD Spoke solicitation (NSF 16-510) to foster multi-sector collaborations among academia, industry, and government to address regional priorities.
The 2017 BD Spokes solicitation extends the BD Hubs and Spokes network by establishing collaborations focused on topics of specific interest to a given region. The first set of BD Spokes was funded in FY 2016. This solicitation calls for new BD Spoke proposals to be awarded in FY 2018. Collaborating with BD Hubs, each BD Spoke will focus on a particular topic that requires Big Data approaches and solutions. The set of activities managed by a BD Spoke will promote progress towards solutions in the chosen topic area. The regional BD Hub Steering Committee will provide general guidance to each BD Spoke and will assist the BD Spoke in coordinating with the national BD Hub network, with other BD Spokes, and with the broader innovation ecosystem.
