PPARC believes that e-science, in the form of developing resources for data and information management and processing across local, national and global networks, will play a major role in the delivery of its future programme. Proposals are invited for PPARC e-science funding, most of which support people developing advanced informatics techniques.
Funding proposals must be science-driven. They will have to demonstrate scientific and technical excellence, setting out the specific contribution they will make to the development and implementation of generic technologies across the science programme. They will be expected to address broader scientific and industrial applicability, and include plans for effective dissemination of results to other science communities and industry. The involvement of the academic computer science community in PPARC e-science proposals is strongly encouraged. Full details online.
