Funding agencies constitute one of the essential pillars for research and have been the backbone for innovation. Data-driven collaborative research is an integral part of many domains. In this session, leaders from the world’s largest biomedical and science research agencies, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) discuss their programs, including NIH Data Commons and Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR). The goal of the NIH Data Commons is to accelerate new biomedical discoveries by providing a cloud-based platform where investigators can store, share, access, and compute on digital objects generated from biomedical research. HDR is one of the 10 "Big Ideas" for future investment from the NSF for fundamental data science research. These collaborative initiatives will enable researchers to accelerate science and engineering through improved access to data, tooling, analytic resources in the cloud. These programs will revolutionize the way scientific data and resources are utilized by the research communities.
