Performance Period: 2/3/2020 to 8/2/2021

SPIDER 2.0 will expand upon the courses developed in the original NIIMBL-funded SPIDER 1.0 project. The project will specifically:

  • Consolidate the blended learning approach taken at the original three US East coast training centers (NC, MD, and MA) under SPIDER 1.0 as well as scale the solution in a similar way to a new training center on the US West coast (CA).
  • Expand the SPIDER partner network to include new technology partners (2), and new community colleges (2).
  • Utilize the infrastructure already put in place under SPIDER 1.0 including the IAAE portal as well as blended course delivery model with academic institutions.
  • Add three new courses that the industry partners on the project team have identified as valid targets for the development of workforce training, being key elements of growth and capability in the industry, delivered via on-line or blended learning formats.
  • Build on the foundation of the essentials course under SPIDER 1.0 to now cover under SPIDER 2.0 the topics of data acquisition, data visualization, data analytics, data modelling, as well as the skills of communicating the value of digital technologies for biomanufacturing.
