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>)

digital curation centre

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) has been established to help solve the extensive challenges of digital preservation and digital curation and to lead research, development, advice, and support services for higher education institutions in the United Kingdom. Scientists, researchers and scholars across the UK generate increasingly vast amounts of digital data, with further investment in digitization and purchase of digital content and information. The scientific record and the documentary heritage created in digital form are at risk from technology obsolescence, from the fragility of digital media, and from lack of the basics of good practice, such as adequate documentation for the data. Working with other practitioners, the DCC supports UK institutions who store, manage and preserve these data to help ensure their enhancement and their continuing long-term use. The DCC also provides a national focus for research and development into digital curation issues and to promote expertise and good practice, both national and international, for the management of all research outputs in digital format. The DCC represents a collaborative effort led by a consortium of four institutions, each bringing diverse experience in a range of Digital Curation areas. It brings together organizations across three Universities and a research council. During Phases I and II the DCC was led by the University of Edinburgh, which hosts the School of Informatics, the National e-Science Centre (NeSC), the EDINA national data centre, the AHRC Centre for the Studies in Intellectual Property and Technology Law, the DCC consortium included HATII at the University of Glasgow, UKOLN at the University of Bath, and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). In Phase III the DCC partners include Informatics at Edinburgh, HATII and UKOLN.
