1 E-Science: Achievements, Challenges and new Opportunities Supercomputing 06 UK e-Science Stand Malcolm Atkinson Director e-Science Institute & e-Science Envoy 13 th November 2006

2 Overview Celebrate Five Years of Success Three Great Strengths Established Welcome New Projects E-Science: Systematic Support for Collaborative Research Multi-disciplinary, Multi-Site & Multi-National All disciplines contribute & benefit Enabling wider engagement Building with advances in Computing Science

3 Foundation for e-Science sensor nets Shared data archives computers software colleagues instruments Grid e-Science methodologies will rapidly transform science, engineering, medicine and business driven by exponential growth (×1000/decade) enabling a whole-system approach Diagram derived from Ian Fosters slide

4 Staff costs - Grid Resources Computers & Network funded separately EPSRC Breakdown UK e-Science Budget ( ) Source: Science Budget 2003/4 – 2005/6, DTI(OST) Total: £213M + Industrial Contributions £25M + £100M via JISC Slide from Steve Newhouse

5 Commitment to e-Infrastructure A shared resource That enables science, research, engineering, medicine, industry, … It will improve UK / European / … productivity Lisbon Accord 2000 e-Science Vision SR2000 – John Taylor Commitment by UK government Sections Always there c.f. telephones, transport, power

6 UK e-Science Success Thriving Community All disciplines & all Research Councils Industry & Academia Many universities & research institutes UK e-Science All Hands Meetings Productive collaboration
