Award bolsters NDSU’s ‘big data’ research

FARGO – A competitive $400,000 grant from the National Science Foundation will help North Dakota State University in its “big data” research capabilities using high-volume, high-velocity data sets.

The three-year grant will create a data-intensive cyberinfrastructure for research and education at NDSU. The office of the provost will contribute more than $171,000 in matching funds.

The infrastructure will be housed in NDSU’s Research and Technology Park. In addition to bolstering NDSU’s research capabilities, the new computing power will help high school and undergraduate students, and students from underrepresented groups, in computational research.
