The Midwest Big Data Hub: advancing the data ecosystem, projects and partnerships

The Midwest Big Data Hub (MBDH) is one of four regional Big Data (BD) Innovation Hubs launched in 2015 with support from the U.S. National Science Foundation. Based at the University of Illinois in Urbana- Champaign, the MBDH is a growing network of academic, industry, and non-governmental partners. The BD Innovation Hubs are intended to strengthen the data ecosystem, and develop effective networks of experts, organizations, projects and resources to address scientific and social issues of regional, national, and international interest. Our outreach and program efforts are focused in thematic and priority areas identified by our regional stakeholders, including: Smart & Resilient Communities (including public health); and, Agriculture, Food, and Water. The MBDH serves twelve states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
