BOULDER – The National Science Foundation is funding a new five-year, $20 million project in data science and diversity at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and the University of Colorado Boulder.
The new Environmental Data Science Innovation and Inclusion Lab, or ESIIL, “will enable work that sheds light on the biological impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss, help planners prepare for extreme disruptions like wildfires and floods, and most importantly, engage diverse voices and responsive to the needs of the community,” said a press release from CU.
The program, which will be funded for five years, “will support collaborative research and education involving vast biological and environmental science datasets, innovative cyber infrastructure, machine learning approaches for analysis, and collaboration with decision makers and other stakeholders,” CU said.
