(novel research we have seen)
EarthCube can be used by many thousands of scientists and educators around the world, simultaneously.
In the U.S., we've partnered with the Ohio State University to research "Creative Team Science". The project involves workshops, a community website, and pilot projects exploring the best ways to support virtual collaboration.
The NSF wants to identify critical information gaps in Arctic observing, and KI is helping with the Arctichub community website, home of the project's database.
The NSF funded Broadening Participation in Environmental Biology project is in its second phase, now focusing on applying the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) methodology to members of the wider EB community. The next milestone will be to develop an online resource of AI derived success stories.
In June, KI traveled to South Africa to help to launch the Africa Science Leadership Program to grow early- to mid-career African academics in the areas of thought leadership, team management and research development. We'll return in November to do a pilot institutional-level workshop at the University of Pretoria.
Over the summer KI ran an Ideas Lab for the NSF on Cracking the Olfactory Code and another on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Biomedical Data Science Challenges.
