What is e-Infrastructure? “Currently, research is increasingly carried out through distributed regional, national and What is e-Infrastructure? “Currently, research is increasingly carried out through distributed regional, national and global collaborations enabled by the Internet. A feature of such collaborations is that they are built upon an infrastructure, comprising of grid computing software, which can provide researchers with shared access to large data collections, advanced ICT tools for data analysis, large scale computing resources, and high performance visualisation, among other examples. e-Infrastructure is the term used for the technology and organisations that support research undertaken in this way. It embraces networks, grids, data centres and collaborative environments, and can include supporting operations centres, service registries, single-sign on, certificate authorities, training and help-desk services. Most importantly, it is the integration of these that defines e -Infrastructure. ” - JISC Website (2007)

Benefits to the Communities ● Research Community (the 'users') – – improved services and Benefits to the Communities ● Research Community (the 'users') – – improved services and tools – ● Understanding of what is available better training and education Service providers – – better understanding of needs – ● Understanding of how researchers actually use services increased uptake of services Training providers – – ● better understanding of needs training material Funders – Increased engagement with research community – Identication of gaps in service provision

Questions and Discussion ● For example, –How would NGS users like to be involved? Questions and Discussion ● For example, –How would NGS users like to be involved? –What –Do do you see the benefits are for yourselves, if any? you agree/disagree with the outlined methodology of these two projects? –What could the project do to effectively engage with early adopters such as yourselves?
