Web: The Future of OMII-UK e-Science: the Changing Landscape 17 April 2009 Neil Chue Hong
Web: The Future of OMII-UK What should OMII-UK evolve into to meet the needs of the e-Research community in 2010 and beyond?
Web: Changing OMII-UK Mission Our mission is to provide Grid software distributions of choice for application scientists and industry wishing to either establish a grid infrastructure and/or develop applications and services for a grid infrastructure Our mission is to provide software and support to enable a sustained future for the UK e-Science community and its international collaborators Our mission is to cultivate and sustain community software important to research
Web: Changing the direction of the organisation Productise software on behalf of the developers Sustain software on behalf of the users We are farmers, not hunter-gatherers
