1 UK e-Science EGEE Second Users Forum Dave Berry Deputy Director for Research with apologies from Malcolm Atkinson 10 th May 2007

2 Overview History of e-Science in UK > 6 years Three Significant Strengths Established Communities & Breadth Science projects (70% of funding, Demanding drivers) e-Infrastructure (hardware, software & training)

3 Defining e-Science e-Science: Systematic Support for Collaborative Research using advanced ICT Multi-disciplinary, Multi-Site & Multi-National All disciplines contribute & benefit Enabling wider engagement Building on and demanding advances in Computing Science Using advances in computing to support research, design, diagnosis Dates back 50 years Prevalent in branches of biology >30 years Prevalent in Engineering for >40 years New emphasis on collaboration, sharing & interdisciplinarity

4 UK e-Science From presentation by Tony Hey GGF5 Edinburgh

5 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

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

7 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 OSI report OSI/index.html
