GIO Staff

GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO)

Here at the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO), we provide high-quality support to the GLOBE community worldwide. We work with scientists, teachers, and an extensive network of stakeholders to increase and enhance public participation in The GLOBE Program. Based out of Boulder, Colorado, USA, the GIO is sponsored through a NASA cooperative agreement award to the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). Together with GLOBE's Working Groups, we work to support community initiatives in the areas of science, education, evaluation, and technology, as well as the development of new science and education content, among other tools.
