When it is released in its final form, the Earth Science Division of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate will solicit proposals through the ROSES-2023 competitive program element A.40 for an organization or a team of multiple organizations to host the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) and collaborate with NASA in the implementation of GLOBE, with the objective of strengthening the programmatic support for GLOBE and enhancing the value of GLOBE to its worldwide community of students, educators, scientists, citizen scientists, and partners.
