Project Details

Layman's description

The project ran an international interdisciplinary research meeting place for six years running research themes, research meetings and a visitor programme. The Institute's function was to stimulate and facilitate the UK’s e-Science research by bringing together the relevant researchers from the UK and beyond, from academia and industry, and by providing an environment conducive to the creation of new ideas that are then followed up.

Key findings

The role of the eSI was not to conduct research but to help others initiate and pursue research goals. For example, the 18 research themes led to significant achievements. Their outputs include 43 refereed conference papers, 36 journal papers, 9 books and 24 other publications, though this is probably significantly under reporting their publication output as that data was gleaned from final reports, and many papers are written later. The total value of their follow on grants, with the same potential for underreporting, amounts to 29 million pounds sterling.
