Next week, we will meet in groups to discuss the Biden Administration’s ambitious set of investment priorities for infrastructure, including a focus on research infrastructure. The package is in a formative stage, and now is an opportune time for the research infrastructure community to provide a vision that defines infrastructure more broadly and in a way that this investment will have a transformative impact on research infrastructure, competitiveness, and inclusivity.
Through the focus groups that will convene next week, we need to hear your stories and vision. Tell us your vision for how people, software, hardware, facilities and sustainability can come together in a 21st century definition of “infrastructure” that advances American competitiveness, inclusivity, facilities, security and STEM workforce to support research, science and education.
The focus groups will be led by a seasoned facilitator, Christine Goodheart, and we have limited each group to 3-8 community members from different backgrounds. Christine will be prepared to prompt the conversation with the questions offered below. In addition, we expect you may have other areas or questions you wish to explore, which we will welcome.
Each of you should have already received a calendar invite with zoom contact information. Please let us know if you have not received an invite. We do intend to record these sessions for transcription which we hope will aid in drafting the resulting paper. (The recordings will not be made public.)
We look forward to seeing you next week!
