"Water Science Software Institute" meeting
This is a closed meeting for a funded synthesis group of visiting scholars.
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), in partnership with the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at UNC Chapel Hill, received support from the National Science Foundation to begin a process that could lead to the development of a multimillion-dollar Water Science Software Institute (WSSI). Led by UNC Chapel Hill, this conceptualization grant provides funding to bring together SESYNC, the University of Illinois’ National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and Red Hat, the world’s most successful open source software company in an innovative partnership to develop a strategic plan for the proposed new institute. The project partners envision creating an institute that will revolutionize how water scientists conduct their research, share research results, and solve critical problems related to water quality, conservation, and accessibility.
