Aims of DSNetUK

To promote and grow an inclusive industrial-university network to determine appropriate goals, aspirations and development strategies for the UK's data storage research, technology and manufacturing base.

Routes for the successful implementation of such strategies will then be explored and put in place. Likely to include:

development of UK Data Storage 'Road Map'

general and topical meetings and workshops

invited addresses by world-leading (industrial) storage experts

staff exchanges

joint funding bids

DSNetUK is funded by DTI as part of Link-ISD programme

£100k for 3 years starting April 1st 2004 - including matched funding from company members

UK and industrially focused
