The North East Cyberinfrastructure Consortium (NECC) is a consortium of five states that are collaborating on building cyberinfrastructure in the NE region. The consortium is not formally affiliated with NSF EPSCoR or the NIH IDeA. The NECC states have a collaborative award from NSF EPSCoR (Track-2) for specific fiber, research, and workforce development and diversity programs. The NECC states have a coordinated set of supplements to INBRE and COBRE grants from NIH NCRR to further build cyberinfrastructure in the region. These supplement cover fiber, research, electronics, and training in cyber-tools and education outreach in the region.
The NEBC has developed Shared Data Center under the NECC, providing access to shared data for NECC investigators. This data center removes institutional barriers for INBRE investigators while maintaining the ease of use of a local shared drive.
