INF11 – Infrastructure for education and research briefing day

Today I’m doing something different here and blogging on behalf of JISC at a briefing day on the “Infrastructure for education and research briefing day” funding call. The briefing is happening at Goodenough College in London, and kicks off with a “Welcome and overview of e-infrastructure innovation” by Neil Jacobs.

Neil starts with the Vision, and what Infrastructure means:

  • Services, policies, tools, and frameworks

The vision talks about the persistence of information, and the extent to which it can be understood, trusted and reused – so semantics and provenance are key concepts.

Neil notes that programmes are supported by the Innovation Support Centres – that is UKOLN, CETIS and OSSWatch – and these also are key in ensuring coherence across projects and programmes.

Various places to look for information about the programme:
