The NSF-funded Midwest Big Data Innovation Hub is leading a series of cross-sector community activities in 2022 and 2023 on data-related needs and challenges around aquatic invasive species (AIS) in the Upper Mississippi River Basin region. These activities will involve gathering input from researchers, Extension, government and tribal agency staff, utilities, and nonprofit partners about their needs for data, tools, and other resources in the AIS space. This information will be shared back with the community via publications and at a workshop in fall 2023.

We invite you and others in your network to participate in any of these activities. More details will be available soon, but if you would like to add your name to our outreach list, complete the form below. If you have questions, please contact
