E science key enabler
e-Science: key enabler

  • e-Science

    Systematic investigation into methods of improving research by applying advances in computation

  • Demand increasing

    • more data, more models, more uses & users

  • Enabler of strategic importance

    • LWEC, Ageing, Energy, Security, Digital Economy, …

    • needed for almost all research priorities

  • Benefits

    • research effectiveness in almost all disciplines

    • decisions, business, healthcare & policy

eSI Activities

  • Themes

  • Responsive events

  • Visitors

  • Training and Summer schools

  • Dissemination


E science evolves
e-Science Evolves

  • 1952 Hodgkin & Huxley use Brunsviga calculators to model “action potentials”

  • 1958 Denis Noble struggles to get computer access

  • 1971 3 structures in PDB at Brookhaven

  • 1980 EMBL-Bank

  • 1995 EBI

  • 2005 ESFRI roadmap: ELIXIR

  • 2009 Douglas Kell, CE of BBSRC, expects:

    • ~50% of research to be “dry” lab

    • >95% of research biologists to use “tools”

The eSI is evolving for e-Science’s future

eSI 2001


Your homework
Your Homework

  • For today’s discussion at 15:15

  • Think about how eSI should evolve

    • For 2011 to 2015

  • I need your advice
