Layman's description

This project was responsible for running the annual meeting of e-Scientists in the UK and for setting up a mechanism for their continuation beyond the end of the project.

Key findings

Three annual meetings were arranged with attendances in the range 400 to 600 researchers. These meetings are a unique opportunity for presenting and developing the research activities from e-Infrastructure provision to scientific discovery exploiting new collaborative, distributed and interdisciplinary opportunities. They also encourage cross-fertilisation across the full spectrum of research disciplines, supported by all of the research councils and charities. Typically 15% of the attendees were from overseas and 10% were from industry.
