Project Jupyter Wins Technical Advancement to Enable Open Science Award

April 1, 2024

On March 21, 2024, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) announced the winners of the OSTP Year of Open Science Recognition Challenge. Project Jupyter, a community of open-source developers, scientists, educators, and data scientists, was recognized with the Technical Advancement to Enable Open Science award for its significant contributions to the scientific community. The project, which was initiated by Fernando Pérez, the current BIDS Faculty Director, in 2001 with IPython, has evolved into a suite of powerful tools that facilitate scientific research, reproducible and open workflows, education, computational narratives, and data analytics across a wide range of disciplines. The Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) supports several core projects within Jupyter, including JupyterHub, JupyterLab, Jupyter Notebooks, and Binder, each designed to make high-powered computational environments more accessible, flexible, and collaborative for users worldwide.
