As part of the national and international R&E networking ecosystem, regional networks are key community leaders and partners in enabling a scalable cyberinfrastructure platform. This scalable cyberinfrastructure platform provides friction-free data access, movement, computation and storage for the purpose of accelerating science, research, and scholarship.
2019 Quilt Research Engagement Goals
Through The Quilt, there are significant opportunities across our regional networking community to share experiences and to learn from those with active programs and initiatives that facilitate the use of cyberinfrastructure resources by scientists, researchers and scholars at member institutions.
Our goals are to leverage The Quilt’s role as convener of regional networks and their stakeholders on topics of interest on cyberinfrastructure deployment, network performance, and research outreach as well as engage with other stakeholder organizations and on national research platform collaborations.
2019 Areas of Focus
- Host 2019 NSF CC* and CICI Programs PI Workshop as co-PI with KINBER – NSF Award # 1936847
- Actively engage with other national community partners on CI facilitation, network performance, and research engagement including, Internet2, ESnet, NSF, CaRC, XSEDE Campus Champions, EPOC, TNRP, Open Science Grid, Globus and others
- Create a forum to share materials and learnings across NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure Programs for Regional Connectivity for Small Institutions of Higher Education and Cyber Team-Research and Education CI-based Regional Facilitation awards.
