Nationwide Openscapes Training at NOAA Fisheries Science Centers: Facilitating Collaboration, Skill-sharing, and Open Science

This blog post is co-written by NOAA Fisheries research staff who are Openscapes Mentors who supported colleagues during our four concurrent Champions Cohorts in Fall 2022. We’ll share what we did across all four Cohorts, as well as specific stories from each Cohort! We’ve also been building resources for NOAA Fisheries and beyond: Background: How NOAA Fisheries Openscapes Cohorts Worked From October-December 2022, over 150 staff from six NOAA Fisheries Science Centers and two Regional Offices, as well as from the Office of Science and Technology participated in the Openscapes Champions Program, a professional development training program for transforming analytical workflows with open science.
