2i2c stands for The International Interactive Computing Collaboration. Our mission is to transform research and education through interactive computing, and to support the open source ecosystem around it.
2i2c is made up of individuals from around the world who are dedicated to this mission. Our host organization is the International Computer Science Institute, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
2i2c’s Open Engineering team focuses on strategy, development, and operations of infrastructure for interactive computing. The Steering Council of 2i2c defines high-level strategy of the organization as well as provides oversight. Here is more information about 2i2c’s structure and governance.
2i2c is supported through a mix of philanthropic support, grants from foundations and federal agencies, and revenue generated through its Managed JupyterHubs service.
2i2c is lucky to receive support from several organizations. This support makes it possible for 2i2c to accomplish its mission, and have impact across research and education.
As a sustainability focused non-profit, 2i2c aims to generate funding from a variety of sources, and towards different ends. It aims to have a balance between “research and development” funding, such as grants and foundation awards, as well as “fee for service” revenue generated from managing JupyterHub infrastructure and performing development for other projects. We continue to explore business models that both grow our capacity to support research and education through interactive computing, and that assist us in supporting open source communities.
2i2c receives direct support from the following institutions.
2i2c is a young organization, and we are actively looking to grow our capacity to offer cloud services as well as collaborate in research and development. We also seek to employ technologists with expertise in cloud infrastructure, dev-ops, and data science, as well as experience in the open source stack of tools for science and education.
