What is Harnessing the Data Revolution?

Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) is one of the “10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investments” and provides a profound opportunity to transform research across all fields of science and engineering through new insights gained from data.

Harnessing the Data Revolution aims to engage NSF’s research community in the pursuit of a cohesive, federated, national-scale approach to advance fundamental data-centric research and data-driven domain discoveries, build data infrastructure for research, and develop a 21st-century data-capable workforce.

Harnessing the Data Revolution builds on NSF’s legacy of data science investments. As the only federal agency supporting all fields of S&E, NSF is uniquely positioned to help ensure that our country’s future is one enriched and improved by data.

As part of HDR, NSF directorates and offices will also collaborate on new approaches to community data governance and research data lifecycles in alignment with NSF’s Public Access Plan.

Scientific Community Workshops

Community input is an integral part of growing NSF’s Harnessing the Data Revolution Big Idea. Below are a number of workshops that are aligned.
