NIH Cloud Platform Interoperability Program

Helping to create a federated data ecosystem

The NIH Cloud Platform Interoperability (NCPI) program includes multiple organizational components that work in tandem to advance the goal of enabling a federated data ecosystem that will facilitate researcher-driven analyses of datasets across multiple cloud-based platforms and repositories. Each component serves a specific role and contributes to the success of the NCPI Program by working in alignment and collaboration with other NCPI components. NCPI organizational components include the following groups:

The NCPI Program, overseen by NIH representatives, is a collaboration between platform team members and researchers running cross-platform research efforts to inform and validate interoperability approaches.
