ESIP Update: The ESIP Meeting recordings are live

And it's the final week of the ESIP Lab RFP, which funds up to $20,000 for wildfire and water resources projects.

Get your ESIP Lab projects in! 

Deadline is Friday, March 3.

Our ESIP Lab process is unique. A small grant can take a big idea to big places. Check out how that happened for Ziheng Sun and Geoweaver or Eric Sproles and mountain snow drone data.

A key part of the process: Including learning objectives in research proposals. Read more about how our ESIP Lab Director Annie Burgess sees new skills as a driver of the research life cycle. (And let us know what #EarthScienceData skills you are working on!)

ESIP News and Events

ESIP Meeting Recordings are Live

Now available on the ESIP YouTube channel as a playlist, we are excited to share the breakout sessions, digital twins plenary, and closing plenary on Sched. The opening plenary is available for a limited time to registered meeting participants — email to get access and listen to short recordings of extra responses to some of the Slido questions. 

Next ESIP Meeting?

If you are wondering about the next meeting, we will be gathering in Burlington, Vermont from July 18-21 at the DoubleTree by Hilton. We keep updated and plan to release our call for sessions in March. We look forward to seeing some of you in person!

Raskin Scholarship – Applications Due March 25

Founded in honor of Rob Raskin, this scholarship helps support graduate students in the Earth or computer sciences with an interest in community evolution of Earth science data systems. The awardee presents at the July ESIP Meeting (remember last year's inspiring presentation with Colette Brown?)

Learn more and share the link: Applications are due by March 25.
