STPI- July 2011 Questionnaire
As the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) approaches the end of its seventh year of operation, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has tasked the Science and Technology Policy Institute/IDA (STPI) with identifying potential scenarios for the future of NSF-supported earthquake engineering facilities (NSF 10-071 Dear Colleague Letter). To help with this task, STPI requested that the current manager of NEES operations, NEEScomm, prepare a retrospective self-study report on the successes and lessons learned managing the NEES network and IT infrastructure.
Without a question, an important component of the NEES legacy is all the investigators who received their PhDs through work in NEES research. Additionally, there have been many other MS graduate students and undergraduate students who have been trained in NEES, as well as postdoctoral and other international researchers. NEEScomm polled NEES equipment sites and NEESR PIs to identify graduate students who have participated in NEES research.
