Science-driven e-Infrastructure Innovation (SEI) Projects Awarded

Spiderweb with Dew

Belmont Forum funders sought to enhance the impact of environmental change research and associated data by supporting technological innovation that would accelerate discovery, inform policy, and support decision making. The resulting call for proposals solicited teams of computer and information scientists and technologists working together with natural and social scientists and related stakeholders in transnational projects. Successful teams would integrate data streams and analysis systems, amalgamate best practices from public and private sectors, and foster open data and open access.
The Belmont Forum is pleased to announce the awarded projects from the Science-driven e- Infrastructure Innovation CRA:
