Updates on the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) Transition from the NASA GLOBE Program Office (GPO)
Following the announcement from GLOBE federal sponsors on the outcome of the GIO cooperative agreement competition on 17 April, 2024, GPO, UCAR GIO, the new GIO team from both the Education Development Center (EDC) and The City University of New York (CUNY), GLOBE Data and Information System (DIS), the GLOBE Observer team, and GLOBE federal co-sponsors have all been hard at work to plan and execute the GIO transition. The overarching goal of the transition activities is for the new GIO team (EDC and CUNY) to understand how various GIO functional groups have operated over the years. This ensures necessary continuity and knowledge transfer to facilitate EDC and CUNY’s planning of the programmatic support they will provide for GLOBE’s worldwide community given their vision.  >>
