Considering a CLAC Cyber Team: A Collaboration that Enables New Approaches to Computationally-Intensive Research


The panel will discuss the journey of small liberal arts colleges working together to develop and submit a collaborative National Science Foundation CyberTeam grant. Over the summer of 2016, a process involving shared documents and thoughtful discussion eventually produced a nine institution proposal. The submission laid out a framework for a team of three experts to support faculty focused on “big data” research and teaching. Although the grant was not funded, we will discuss the process and possible next steps.
