Dr. Minoo Rathnasabapathy presented on the mission of Space Enabled, highlighting in particular those projects using space technologies for the SDGs.
The Network for Earth-space Research Education and Innovation with Data (NEREID) is a network of practitioners across academia, industry and research to identify, leverage, amplify, and scale efforts to conduct research, develop tools, and engage communities of learners and policymakers in Earth and space science. NEREID recognizes the importance of interdisciplinary, equity, and the dynamic relationship among data, modeling, and individual perspective. NEREID will facilitate development and dissemination of accessible and democratized tools and methods and work with systems of education and learning to integrate these tools into education and policy. NEREID will accomplish this through development of a community of practice: a network of practitioners who are aligned in their goals and work mutualistically toward a common purpose.
Mission: The Network for Earth-space Research Education and Innovation with Data (NEREID) advances research and innovation through education and engagement with big data in Earth-space sciences.
• Explore the challenges of big data in Earth-space science and implement solutions across learning.
• Build an interdisciplinary community of practice in Earth-space data science learning.
• Develop and disseminate research-based best practices and curricular resources in teaching and learning with Earth-space data.
• Bring together industry, academia, and policy makers to build and grow a data literate workforce and society.
