Open Data and a Big Data Platform Webinar

presented by Medha Devare of CGIAR

Open data is increasingly becoming a priority and requirement from funders like Gates Foundation, NIH, NSF and other federal agencies. Universities have been mixed in their response to the move to open data. CGIAR (formerly the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research) is developing a Big Data Platform aimed to enable researchers to discover, analyze and visualize agricultural data on a large scale, while also building partnerships with a variety of external partners. This webinar will focus on the benefits of open data for universities and share more about the Big Data Platform.
