APPLIED EARTH OBSERVATIONS

INNOVATION PARTNERSHIP

Fostering interagency partnerships to advance Earth Observation-based land management.

Call for Nominations

AEOIP 2024-2025 Co-chairs

Dear AEOIP Community,

The AEOIP invites nominations for new co-chairs to lead our collaboration and guide the AEOIP mission for the next year. Since 2019, AEOIP has strengthened collaborations between NASA, the USDA Forest Service, USGS, and other federal land management agencies. AEOIP aims to facilitate the exchange of knowledge for effective use of NASA Earth observations in resource management. Since its inception in 2018, AEOIP has hosted five major events, including the 2019 Joint USFS-NASA Workshop, the 2020 Virtual Pitch Fest, and annual workshops in 2022, 2023, and 2024. A summary of the past year's accomplishments and draft priorities for the upcoming year are posted here.

AEOIP co-chairs serve from July to June and rotate annually. New co-chairs will collaborate with the organizing committee and benefit from the multidisciplinary guidance of its members. Ideally, one co-chair will represent Earth observation data providers, and the other will represent U.S. federal land managers (e.g., USDA Forest Service, DOI agencies), with NASA participation.

The following provides a list of responsibilities for the co-chair role that nominees should consider when proposing:

  • Champion AEOIP mission vision and guiding principles.

  • Advocate for and seek to expand inter-agency collaboration.

  • Chair biweekly planning calls.

  • Work with committee members to develop activities and a timeline for implementation

  • Manage NASA-supported activities, including the AEOIP website.

  • Coordinate with federal agency leadership.

  • Communicate key activities (e.g., reports, presentations).

  • Oversee proposal development to achieve AEOIP goals.

 

Nominations must be received by July 19th and sent to jeffrey.morisette@usda.gov or jessica.burnett@nasa.gov. This is a voluntary position with no compensation. The term for the 2024-2025 co-chairs will begin August 1, 2024, and end July 30, 2025.

Fostering interagency partnerships to advance Earth Observation-based land management. 

By connecting Earth observation science & technology experts with land management experts, we seek to increase awareness of new Earth Observation (EO) capabilities, as well as research and operational management challenges, in order to help formulate solutions through effective integration of data.
