MOBILIZING THE HUB COMMUNITY OVERVIEW

The South Hub accelerates academic, industry, and community engagement in big data and data science by enabling networking and dialogue among stakeholders to assess their needs and increase the sharing of success stories, lessons learned, and best practices. In addition to the development of the Southern Region Data community, the South Hub also actively participates in the creation of a light-weight national coordination body through a National Coordination Committee (NCC) that allows the Hubs as a collective to respond to opportunities and scale insights across common goals.
