National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis

Project Description

NCEAS and its partner collaborators are developing a strategic plan for a nationally supported Institute that would coordinate the development and sustainable support of innovative and interoperable scientific software tools that can transform science at the intersection of earth, environmental, and life sciences. The ISEES steering committee is facilitating a series of design workshops with the broader research community to create a vision and criteria for an Institute. ISEES will advance the state of science software by engaging earth and environmental research communities to address the software barriers that most impede grand challenge earth science. The envisioned institute will enable researchers to collaboratively address the entire software lifecycle, from product conceptualization, to requirements analysis, design, development, testing, deployment, long-term support, and decommissioning.
