- Sponsors visit: Erin, Christine and I met with NASA and NOAA sponsors. The purpose was to provide our sponsors an update of ESIP activities that are of specific interest to their programs and to hear how ESIP can serve them better. Other topics included ESIP Evaluation, International Data Week, Earth Science User Conference, etc.
- Potential partners visit: We also visited US-GEO/OSTP, NIH and World Bank. The purpose was to provide potential partner/collaborative organizations a high-level overview of ESIP, share with them our strategic vision and activities, learn about their synergetic activites, and explore opportunities and collaboration.
