Facilitating ongoing collaborations between and among NRAO and NINE Hubs across the region.
NINE Program Foci
The NINE training program has two areas of focus:
(1) the teaching of sustainable skills to learners at
different academic and career levels; specifically, using Google Colab and
Github to teach students data mining skills using community-driven data
products from NRAO telescope facilities
(2) training in, and use of, Project Management skills to
create a comprehensive plan for a NINE hub at the visitor’s home institution.
NINE hubs recreate the skills training in their own communities, and share best
practices and newly developed materials and activities in the cloud between hubs.
