A team of six Michigan State University astronomers and astrophysicists, three being CMSE faculty members Claudio Kopper, Sean Couch and Wolfgang Kerzendorf, is part of a multi-institution effort funded by NSF to "develop the concept for a Scalable Cyberinfrastructure Institute for Multi-Messenger Astrophysics, or SCIMMA, that would allow researchers from around the globe to collectively share multi-messenger observations—transcending the capabilities of any single existing institution or team."

The project, named “A Framework for Data Intensive Discovery in Multi-Messenger Astrophysics,” is supported by a $2.8 million two-year NSF grant under the direction the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), Pennsylvania State University—University Park and the University of Washington.
