EarthCube

EarthCube is a community-driven activity sponsored through a partnership between the NSF Directorate of Geosciences and Office of Cyberinfrastructure to transform the conduct of geosciences research and education.

EarthCube aims to create a well-connected and facile environment to share data and

knowledge in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner, thus accelerating the ability of the geosciences community to understand and predict the Earth system.

EarthCube is a long-term dialog between the NSF and the interested scientific communities to develop cyberinfrastructure that is thoughtfully and systematically built to meet the current and future requirements of geoscientists.

New avenues will be supported to gather community requirements and priorities for the elements of EarthCube, and to capture the best technologies to meet the current and future needs of the broad and diverse geoscience community.

The EarthCube portfolio will consist of interconnected projects and activities that engage the geoscience, cyberinfrastructure, computer science, and associated communities.

The portfolio of activities and funding opportunities will evolve over time depending on the status of the EarthCube effort and the scientific and cultural needs of the geosciences community.This umbrella solicitation for EarthCube allows funding opportunities to be flexible and responsive to emerging community needs and collaborative processes.

The EarthCube vision and goals do not change over time, and this section of the solicitation will remain constant.

Funding opportunities to develop elements of the EarthCube environment will be described in amendments to this solicitation.

Amendments will appear in the Program Description Section of the solicitation and will include details on the parameters, scope, conditions, and requirements of the proposal call.

Researchers who receive alerts related to solicitation releases will receive notification when the EarthCube solicitation is updated with an Amendment.
