EarthCube can be used by many thousands of scientists and educators around the world, simultaneously.
In the UK, KI facilitated the WSSSPE workshop to promote sustainable software for scientific research. The program promotes best practices and accreditation of software developments for research scientists.
Also in September, Knowinnovation facilitated an Ideas Lab on the Origins of Life, sponsored by the the Astrobiology Program of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) in partnership with the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) and the Directorate of Geosciences (GEO) of the NSF.
KI's new initiative, Inclusive Innovation, went to Guadalajara, Mexico to facilitate a Sandpit on using technology to transform marginalized neighborhoods into "smart" ones. (See the call here.) The event was sponsored by the InterAmerican Development Bank (IADB)'s innovative fund, the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), the state government of Jalisco and Cisco.
Inclusive Innovation also worked with the Global Young Academy (GYA) to facilitate a pre-conference workshop on broadening the scope of science advice, prior to the INGSA conference on science advisement.
We continue to work with the Africa Science Leadership Program (ASLP), designed to grow early- to mid-career African academics in the areas of thought leadership, team management and research development. In October, we're in Pretoria to run a local Science Leadership program and clinic, as well as a scoping meeting for a potential Ideas Lab in Africa in 2017.
