data curation for e-science

The DTI and the Research Councils are committing &pound;118M to a government-industry programme on e-Science. The reason for this investment is that GRID technology is seen as the natural successor to the world wide web and the UK wants to take a leading role in order to develop solutions for its scientists and developing opportunities for its industry. The world wide web has revolutionised the way companies do business and fundamentally altered people's personal lives but it can no longer cope with the demands being placed on it by science. The world wide web allows very easy access to information, Grid allows that same easy access to computing power, data processing and communication of the results. The opportunities are immense, it will allow the efficient manipulation of vast amounts of information such as that contained in the human genome or the results from experiments in CERN's new Large Hadron Collider. It will also allow the ability to mine data again and again by comparing existing data sets collected for one purpose with new and previously unrelated information, so generating new knowledge. This consultancy will establish the current provision and future requirements for curation of primary research data being generated within e-science in the UK. This will include the e-science core programme but is anticipated to extend beyond this to other e-science research and primary research data. A consultancy report will provide a synthesis of findings and make recommendations for future action. The consultancy will support aims to manage JISC involvement in e-Science and the Research Grid, and to work in partnership to support the research community through activities such as its digital preservation programme. Project start date: 2003-02-01. Project end date: 2004-02-02. (Excerpt from <a href="https://pims.jisc.ac.uk/projects/view/931">this source</a>)

national e-science centre

The National e-Science Centre was proposed and established by a consortium of departments from the universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Participating departments from the University of Edinburgh includ: Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC); School of Informatics; School of Physics. Participating departments from the University of Glasgow include: Department of Computing Science; Department of Physics & Astronomy.

E-Science (or eScience) is computationally intensive science that is carried out in highly distributed network environments, or science that uses immense data sets that require grid computing; the term sometimes includes technologies that enable distributed collaboration, such as the Access Grid. The term was created by John Taylor, the Director General of the United Kingdom's Office of Science and Technology in 1999 and was used to describe a large funding initiative starting in November 2000. Examples of the kind of science include social simulations, particle physics, earth sciences and bio-informatics. Particle physics has a well developed e-Science infrastructure in particular because of its need for adequate computing facilities for the analysis of results and storage of data originating from the CERN Large Hadron Collider, which started taking data in 2009.
